Crochet Vintage Cloche Hat Pattern – 1920s Flapper

Crochet Vintage Cloche Hat Pattern – 1920s Flapper

Crochet Vintage Cloche Hat

I have always had a thing for the “Vintage” look. There is something very classy & elegant about the era. So I created this crochet vintage cloche hat. 

 I didn’t want this hat to look like the typical crochet cloche hat, so I literally added my on twist.

The hat is worked in a figure 8 pattern. This figure 8 will form the bottom half of the hat.  We will then move on to work in  the round as normal. 

This pattern is not for the faint of heart. There is one, & only one spot where a few people get stuck. At the half-way point in this pattern you will stop working in a figure 8 pattern & use one slip stitch close off the hat. The placement of this slip stitch has thrown a lot of people off. But I have provided pictures & a free video tutorial to get you past this one difficult stitch

    Great article, totally what I needed.

    I am making this for a cancer patient losing her hair, who love the picture i sent her
    Question
    To make this a little more snug can i use a smaller size hook
    I am using a 100% cotton yarn

    1. Alysha Littlejohn

      The design of the hat is fitted. But if you want to drop down a size 5.5 mm crochet hook should do the trick.

    you are in reality a good webmaster. The site loading speed is incredible.
    It kind of feels that you’re doing any unique trick.

    Furthermore, The contents are masterpiece. you have performed a fantastic activity in this matter!

    I cannot understand how you get double the number of stitches at the end of round one.

    1. Alysha Littlejohn

      Because you are working on the underside of the chain. The top of the chain is 60 stitches. The underside is 60 stitches. 60+60= 120. A complete figure 8 rotations is one row. Let me know if this makes sense. Make sure you follow along to the video also. This can be a tricky pattern

  5. Hannah Mecoe

    It’s an intriguing pattern, but I can’t see anything about the tension/gauge you work at.

  6. Colette Baker

    Would love to know the circumference size, so I can work out if the hat will fit.

    1. Alysha Littlejohn

      The hat circumference 21-22 inches. The starting change should be the circumference of your head. If it doesn’t fit go up a hook size.

    I made the hat last week, and it came out beautifully! I am a person who doesn’t fit into “one size fits all” hats, so making my own hat lets me adjust the size to fit. Thank you for the sharing the pattern, and the clear instructions.

      You’re welcome!
