The cloche crochet hat instructions come in three sizes; Small, medium, and large.
The whole piece is worked in a spiral, in the round in single crochet with RS facing throughout. It is therefore not joined with a slst at the end of each round. The bow is also worked with the brim of the hat as a continued one piece with cap.
Although I have given instructions on how to stiffen the brim edge, this is not essential. You will find this round-by-round pattern instruction is easy and relaxing to recreate.
Raffia has not been used as I prefer something softer on my head, but nothing stops you from using raffia as a substitute, as long as you watch your gauge. The front decoration is optional and you can put anything or nothing at all.
The original shown has silk flowers attached and application instructions are also given
TBeeCosy and ByHookandBy Needle
I love love love creating my own designs with yarn, combining various techniques to achieve "the look". Like mixing knitting and crochet. (Always use only single-pointed knitting needles) I want everyone to be able to create my designs, so I love the challenge of making designs that look complicated yet the average person can make them, i.e. keeping them simple as possible, yet looks difficult :)
Sometimes I start to make one thing, but as I go along my mind wanders into something else or I start with one color and just let myself go until I have completed something that never entered my mind in the first place! For my Fairy Mushroom Tea Cosy I first made the Cream Tea Cosy with the intent to make a white vanilla or white chocolate cake, only to find the next moment I had a sudden urge to make a mushroom tea cosy using just single pointed needles and to keep it as simple as possible, so that virtually anyone can do....
With all my patterns I have designed a special matching envelope which comes with the instant downloadable .pdf pattern/s when you purchase any of my patterns - with my love from the other side of the world, from me to you xxxx
This year I decided to separate my tea cosies, keeping them under the shop name TBeeCosy and the rest under the name of ByHookOrByNeedle. There is no separate shop, just the instructions logo will have one or the other
