Crochet Pattern: Bluebell Cloche

This hat idea was born during my quest to find crochet cloche patterns thanks to Bonnie and Clyde. I couldn’t find a pattern for what I pictured in my head so I made it up as I worked. Made entirely in the round using one ball of yarn and only 23 rows (!!) of crochet. Pretty quick and lightweight project. Download a PDF at link below, check it out on Ravelry, or purchase this hat on Etsy.

Bluebell Cloche

scarves 021

Yarn:  1 ball of Knit Picks Palette fingering weight yarn in Bluebell or equivalent yarn

Hook: Size E hook or hook that yields appropriate gauge

Gauge: 10 sts = 2 inches in hdc

Measurements: Finished hat measures approximately 8.5 inches tall and 12 inches at widest

Abbreviations:  

sc = single crochet                    dc = double crochet

hdc = half-double crochet       sts = stitches

ch = chain                                   sl = slip

Techniques:

This hat is worked entirely in the round beginning at the crown. Be sure to chain 2 at the start of each non-eyelet round as the first half-double crochet. Each non-eyelet round is joined with a slip stitch into the first chain 2 of that round. Eyelet rounds are joined to the 3rd chain of the first ch 6 of that round. I used a magic ring to start my rounds but use whatever method you like best.

Directions:

1)    Make 8 single crochet in a magic ring, slip stitching into first sc. (8 stitches around)

2)    Ch 2, 2 half-double crochet into each sc around. (16 sts)

  1. Hello, thanks for sharing your pattern.
    After completing this project, I’m unclear on some of the instructions. In row 12 (and the other eyelets) I followed the pattern and ended up with an increase. By skipping three st, and DC in the 4th, I ended up at the proper number of st.

    • Hi Anna! Thanks for the message. I haven’t made this hat since drafting the pattern a couple years ago but I pulled out the hat and the pattern and from what I can tell, the pattern is accurate as to how the hat was made. I do not have any increases beyond that eyelet row. Perhaps I am off a stitch and that’s why you have to go into the 4th? Again, I did just count and had the right number of stitches but maybe I miscounted. I will take a closer look next time I make it up using this pattern.
