The 1920s Cloche Crochet Hat is show with some frequencey and it is adorable, however, I have tried to find the pattern and none of the links get to the actual pattern. Very frustrating.

Because I like the fit and the size on my head, I got my hook and yarn right away and started this cloche hat. I'm already in round 6 and doing it in brown. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Hats, hats, hats. I never have enough hats. I really think this cloche pattern is easy to follow and should be completed in a short time. I am thinking that I will attach the flower with something removable so that I can change out the flower when I want.

Mawsy, sometimes the curling is caused by crocheting too tightly and just switching to a size larger of a hook can fix it. Other times, it is just the decreases in the pattern itself. You can try blocking it flat though. I made this hat a few years ago with loopsthreads cozy wool and it was a very easy pattern to follow. I really enjoyed making it. I think a beginner could work this pattern with out much trouble. I love that Olivia of Hopeful Honey's patterns tend to have vintage flair and are usually easy to follow.

I love anything with a vintage look and I really love this hat. This hat is so cute that my friends all want one for themselves too. I gave one to a coworker and now everybody at work wants one too. I really enjoy the pattern because it is so easy. The flower embellishment is pretty worked in different colors.

I want a big brim hat, for summer. Just plain sc, all around. One that is not too complicated. Thank you. biglil822@yahoo.com

This 1920's Cloche crochet hat is stunning. I like the brim of the hat and the flower sets it off. I have thick hair and I'm just wondering if I need to make the stitches loose so the yarn will have more give. Anyone have any ideas on that?

You can try that, for sure. I'd just warn that if you increase the gauge too much, your hat will lose a bit of it's shape. Good luck!

I was just searching for a hat to make, especially one like this for chemo patients. I have made several beanies and have been trying to spice up the pattern because they do not need to be just plain beanies, so this one will be perfect. I am glad for the reply by Cheryl Y as it tells me this has been made successfully.

Hi Stephanie! What a great idea for a project, and thank you for sharing! Megan, AFC Editor

A great hat that's both stylish and keeps you warm. This would look fantastic in any number of colors, I'm thinking of doing one in black with a bright red rose. The pattern looks easy to follow and shouldn't take long to make. A great alternative to the ski hat when you want to wear something classy on a cold day.

I made this beautiful 1929's Cloche Crochet Hat for a friend and she loves it. I found the pattern every easy to follow and it came out great! When it came to the flower I was like no way, but it also worked out. I thought the hat came out a little small, but it fit her so well and she said that when it stretches it will still fit. Now she wants 6 more in different colors, one for every day of the week. Too cute! The best part was it only took me 5 hours to make this hat. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but my hat is huge! lol

Whenever I have a problem like yours I try using a smaller needle. If you try a G or F hook --it makes a big difference.

Hi Seton Crochet Group! Thank you for the advice. I am sure readers will appreciate it! Megan, AFC Editor

The same for me. I tried to get help but so far nothing. I got to the next to last round that has 103 stitches them the next you have a single crochet of 56 stitches. How in the world can you do that?

Ooh I truly LOVE cloche hats and have crocheted quite a number of them over the years. I also like that this one appears slightly "longer" under the ears. In my mind this makes it closer to the elegant flapper era. In addition, I think the greater length will make the hat warmer in the heart of winter.

I like bigger hats and this one will be perfect. Easy to read instructions plus I like the addition of the flower at the side.

I used a # 6 chunky, it turned out beautifully. I would like to make another but a little smaller. What should I change? Thanks !

This is such a cute hat, I love it. I am so into hats this year. I love the way this one looks, and appears to be an easy pattern to do. It worked up easy, and I did mine in green for a friend of mine. She loves the hat and it looks so good on her. I love it that hats are back in style, hope they stay for a while.

Have you tried this craft? What did you think?

I have a question- why - when I try to crochet a round circle does it curl up on me- I am trying to crochet a pumpkin but it curls up every time, and I have tried every way I can think of to get it right?

It is possible that you are not increasing on the rows. This will make it not lie flat. Also, at some point the hat will start to curl some, but not a lot. It has to curl some in order to fit down over the head. HTH!

I can't get this pattern to download.
