Dapper Cloche

Dapper Cloche



Cloche style hats are wonderful for framing your face and keeping your ears warm. This style with a half-brim is especially flattering, and can be dressed up with a ribbon rose (online tutorial available) or another pretty brooch. The herringbone stitch pattern creates a rich texture. Best of all, the brim is constructed completely of knit fabric—no plastic insert!—so it’s soft and flexible.
