Speckled Cloche Hat
"Looking for a super classy hat that you can wear anywhere? You will love this fantastic bucket style cloche hat. The project is worked from the center of the top, down to the hem. The stitch pattern is a fun little repeat of crossed stitches for a touch of lace until you get to the faux hat band. The addition of the clever little buckle is really what takes this hat from ordinary to elegant. Never underestimate the power of embellishment!"
