    Aesthetic Nest: Crochet Tutorial: Best Baby Cloche

  • Janice Little

    Best Baby Cloche and Tutorial Motherhood has not come easy for me in terms of actually getting my children here and I feel so incredibly fortunate and blessed to now find myself with these two darling daughters and a third on the way. The phrases, "late bloomer, " "better late than never," and "good things come to those who wait" come to mind! You just never know how things will turn out. I can't imagine my life without my little muses. While I've always sought creative outlets nothing has been more creatively fulfilling for me than nurturing babies into little children. The possibilities are so endless! The discovery process so fascinating. And the fact that they are individuals with their own opinions makes it even more interesting and challenging. I try to shape, but I also try to learn and I anticipate more learning in the future as they become more independent. Scary. While I am surprised to find myself mothering three girls rather than some more varied combination, I just couldn't be happier about it (and their father is pretty spoiled too I have to say). Hard to imagine where I would direct all my creative energy if, for instance, I had three boys. I absolutely love knitting, crocheting, sewing, painting and throwing parties for my girls. My blog documents the activity and there's a lot of it going on lately as I'm in full blown nesting mode. So, I was thrilled when Shannon invited me to share something in the Bonanza. I put this little crochet cloche on my nesting list and am sharing a pattern and tutorial for it today (great to have the motivation to actually document the pattern!). I made the original, little pink version, for my daughter, Scarlett, when she was born and loved it! I love a cloche on a little babe because it emphasizes her already large eyes. The cotton yarn makes it super easy wash-and-wear and versatile in terms of seasons. And the worsted weight crochet means this is fast. I'm all about finishing so a love a quick pattern! This would be good for a beginner and would make a darling baby gift. Who can resist the oversized flower and eyelet edging? This hat is all girl! You can find the PDF of the pattern (*UPDATED WITH SIZES 0-3, 3-6, AND 6-12 MONTHS*) and a full tutorial after the jump. Thanks for the LUV, Shannon! Download a PDF of this pattern in all three sizes here: Best Baby Cloche Crochet Pattern_www.aestheticnest TUTORIAL: Best Baby Cloche (Tutorial provides instructions for size 3-6 months only) MATERIALS • 1 skein Lily Sugar’n Cream 100% cotton yarn (or another worsted weight cotton/blend yarn) • Size H crochet hook • Yarn needle for finishing GAUGE: about 4 hdc= 1 inch CLOCHE Foundation Ring: Chain four.

Work one dhdc.** Repeat from * to ** one more time and finish round with a sl st in the top of ch 2. (49 hdc) (above photo shows work after first yo, insert hook in next hdc, yo, draw loop through...) (above photo shows next yo...)

(7 petals) Now slip stitch around the post of the beginning double crochet to work your way down to round 1. Slip stitch through the first skipped dc in that round. (This is easier in my mind than fastening off and joining with a new piece of yarn.) Round 4: Ch 3. *Sl st in the next skipped dc. Ch 3.** You have created a ch-3 space in front of the first dc from round 2. Repeat from * to ** around and finish with a slip stitch in the base of the first ch-3. Round 5 (this is the front row of petals): (sc, hdc, 2 dc, hdc, sc) in each ch 3 space around to form seven petals. Join with a sl st in the first sc. Fasten off. Leave a longer tail of yarn to attach the flower to the cloche. Attach flower to hat as pictured using yarn ends. Weave in ends. *If you make a cloche please consider sharing a photo in the Flickr group. Thanks!* Bookmark and Share Posted by Anneliese at 5:00 AM Labels: baby, Crochet, patterns, tutorial 87 comments: Missy said... I'm in love with this hat. Hopefully one day I'll have a girl so I can make one of these for her. Thank you! July 22, 2010 10:19 AM Kellie said... Cannot WAIT to make this for two new baby girls in my life! Thank you for the tutorial! July 22, 2010 11:21 AM Amy T said... I am starting this tonight! July 22, 2010 4:14 PM Kelli said... I saw this today and just had to make it. I have only just recently picked up this new craft. I've gone around some receiving blankets in the past month, but I'm kind of considering this my as my first 'project'. I've got a baby girl arriving in the next 3 weeks and this was perfect. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I love it! July 22, 2010 5:02 PM Hi, I'm Hannah. said... I just found your beautiful blog via Shannon. Thanks for the tutorial and for all of the beauty! Look forward to checking in on you often. July 22, 2010 6:05 PM Kara@ Creations by Kara said... Just found you over at Ucreate. Thank you so much for sharing this adorable pattern!! I just printed off and can't wait to get started. :) July 22, 2010 11:11 PM Kellie said... Finished my hat last night and posted about it today. Thank you for this tutorial. It's awesome! http://coffeegal.blogspot.com/2010/07/friday-links-get-creative.html July 23, 2010 2:00 PM Vicki said... Is it possible to adapt this to a larger size? I am sure the flower would stay the same, but how much would I need to add to make it for 6-12 months? I am wanting to make it as a gift but the baby is older :) Thanks! July 23, 2010 3:31 PM Anneliese said... Vicki, this can certainly be adapted...but I haven't worked it out yet. If you want to give me your email or a blog to which to post I can let you know when I calculate it. Thanks for your interest! July 23, 2010 5:37 PM Vicki said... Hi Anneliese! I don't have a blog (yet). I have been trying to get around to starting one, but haven't gotten it going yet! :) Anyway, here is my email VickiNicki@hotmail.com. I would LOVE to hear from ya as I really want to make this for my niece! I am currently 8 months preggo with a BOY so no flowers for him! but at least I can dote on my niece with girly fun stuff:) I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks again! July 23, 2010 10:39 PM Kellie said... Anneliese, I tried to email you from the comment you made on my blog re: Flickr, but your comment has a "non-reply" email address. I wanted to let you know that I would glady join your Flickr page. My cloche is up and running on your set. Again, thank you! July 24, 2010 6:29 AM michelle@somedaycrafts said... Darling! I am featuring this at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com July 24, 2010 11:05 AM Cami said... Such a great tutorial! I'm going to start on it first thing Monday morning. I saw that you also have cute baby boots you made as well. Have you done a tutorial on them, or are you planning on it? Very very cute! July 24, 2010 11:08 PM Cazra Dunford said... I think I saw some super cutie booties too.....do you have a pattern for those? Love it!! July 25, 2010 10:10 PM Anneliese said... Thanks for asking about the booties. I do have plans to work up a pattern, soon I hope. Stay tuned for the post! July 26, 2010 8:00 PM Cami said... Hey, I was wondering, I've tried the pattern twice now, and both times my cloche is wide, but not very long. I used the same thread and needle as you, and I followed the directions exactly. Is there something I'm not doing? (Do I need to make my stitches tighter?) Thanks!! July 27, 2010 10:24 PM Anneliese said... Cami, this is a shorter hat than most. It usually just covers the top of my baby's ears. If you would like it a bit longer I would suggest adding an extra row, or even two. Just repeat Row 9. Another option, if you think it's too wide, is to decrease one hook size and also add an extra row. Hope that helps! Thanks. July 28, 2010 8:47 AM joeymc said... Thank you for this tutorial!! It is to easy to follow. I started this over my lunch hour, went back to work, and had it finished by 7:30 tonight. So easy and so cute! July 28, 2010 9:26 PM my spare time design said... As the mom of three boys, trust me you just express it differently...not so much crochet but wall murals, altered furniture, handmade clothes and toys...I did it all and have fond memories of each....a very cute hat and may be adorning my first grandchild's head this September should it be a little girl! July 28, 2010 9:57 PM Erin said... Love this hat and am working on getting my first one finished! Very easy to follow pattern - thank you! :o) July 30, 2010 2:25 PM Lauren said... Thanks so much! This is my first crochet project other than blankets and scarves. It took me a few tries, but I finally figured everything out--and it's ADORABLE! I love it and am sending it to my soon-to-get-here niece. Now I'm trying to adapt it for my 4 year old girl. Any tips? July 30, 2010 4:07 PM Anneliese said... Lauren, I'm so happy this worked for you! Congratulations on your first hat! I am actually planning to upsize this pattern for my four year old (currently working on other baby sizes)and should have it in the next couple weeks I think. So if you can wait I'll have an updated, upsized pattern for you. Thanks for your comment. July 30, 2010 5:36 PM Lauren said... Oh, I can wait. Every attempt on my own has come out too big, no matter how many times I try to check it on her first, lol! Thanks! July 31, 2010 1:57 PM Thimbelina said... Hi Anneliese, Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial... I made my first baby Cloche from it last night and while it doesn't seem as deep as the one's you made, your pattern was easy to follow, even for a beginner. You can read about my attempt here: http://thimbelinas.blogspot.com/2010/08/learning-new-skills.html The only thing I was unsure of was where exactly to start the scallops from as I couldn't seem to crochet into the DC? Thanks again August 7, 2010 5:48 PM Anneliese said... For those of you asking for additional sizes, I just updated the PDF file hosted on Scribd with a pattern that has additional sizes: 0-3 months and 6-12 months along with the original 3-6 months. The link in this original post still works. Thanks for your interest! August 13, 2010 4:24 PM micheleh said... I am not having any luck at Scribd. It won't let me print the pattern. It just seemed like Scribd wanted a lot of info and access to my Face Book account and then wouldn't let me print the pattern. Is it a scam? September 2, 2010 12:22 AM Anneliese said... Micheleh, I'm sorry you're having trouble accessing the file. I used Scribd to host based on some reviews--it seems to have a good reputation. And it looks like the file has been downloaded more than 700 times... They integrate with Facebook for profile information and to allow folks to post on Facebook what they are accessing on Scribd. In any event, I would be happy to email you the pattern if you want to make your email visible in your blogger profile, or post it for me. Thanks. September 2, 2010 1:12 PM Kim @ Life of a Modern Mom said... Thanks, this is SO cute! I put a picture of the one we made on my blog today with a link to your post. Thanks! http://www.aestheticnest.com/2010/07/crochet-best-baby-cloche-and-tutorial.html September 5, 2010 1:04 PM The Bella Life said... Ah-dorable! I don't plan on having kids anytime soon, but I sure want to make one of these for a little girl. Maybe even myself. Great post! Thanks for sharing! -Kiersten, TheBellaLife September 9, 2010 6:54 PM Missy Luukkonen said... This post makes me want to learn how to crochet, my grandmother used to do it, and tried to teach me, but that was about 22 years ago! Mybe that would be a good winter hobby! The hats are adorable! September 9, 2010 8:54 PM Debbie said... I am not able to download the pdf pattern for this little hat? I do not have a facebook account and don't want to join right now. Is there any other way i can get the pattern? Debbie in KS sewntrouble@yahoo.com September 9, 2010 11:56 PM Chantel said... I just found your blog through Ucreate, and am so happy I did! :) I have never crocheted in my life, and have a little one due very soon. I read up on crochet stitches and patterns and tried my hand at your clothe pattern. I am happy to say that I am nearly done (still have to finish the border) and it is a success! :) It certainly isn't without flaw, but it has been the perfect first project. I can't wait to put it on my new baby girl, and look forward to making many more! (I will have 3 little girls as well. :) Thank you so much! September 10, 2010 9:08 AM Dreaming West said... I love it! I made the cloche last night but am having serious trouble with the flower. Yours looks flat, but by the time I finish the first round of petals, mine is shaped like a cup! I've gone over the directions four times now and keep getting the same results. Just wondering what I'm doing wrong... September 15, 2010 11:29 AM Dreaming West said... Never mind, I figured it out and the finished effect is darling! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. September 15, 2010 1:26 PM Melanie said... I love this hat! I am trying to make it right now for my 4 month old and well when I get to Round 3 I am getting 22 hdc's instead of 21. I have tried it 3 times already. I am goofing up somewhere and don't know where. I even tried using my stitch marker and still. HELP! Thank you! October 14, 2010 8:00 PM Anneliese said... Melanie, sorry to hear you are having trouble with the hat! I will email you a couple possibilities for why you are getting an extra stitch... Thanks for contacting me. October 14, 2010 10:29 PM Mary said... I made the hat (so cute) from the tutorial, but I too am having trouble printing the other sizes. Would it be possible to email me. By the way I love your site. Thanks, Mary my email is: mmadson@dsdmail.net October 22, 2010 2:07 PM Laura said... I've tried the hat in all three sizes. I just wondered is the 3/6 month and th 6/12 month really that close in Size?? Mine have the correct number of rows.. just seems they are awfully close October 23, 2010 8:24 PM Anneliese said... Laura, the increases between those sizes are pretty small (I've found this with other hat patterns too), I guess because their heads are pretty small so every extra stitch makes a difference... I fiddled with larger sizes and they got too big too quickly but you could easily add an extra row and/or an extra increase if you'd like. These hats also stretch quite a bit if you are using the cotton yarn. The 18-24 mo hat I made has fit at 18 mos and 24 months because it keeps growing with my little girl! I hope the hats work well for you and yoru recipients! Thanks for the comment. -A October 24, 2010 9:58 AM Laura said... Anneliese, Thanks for the comment I have another question for you. I posted some of my finished pieces, and had people ask me how much?!?! I pleased and surprised. People are asking me if they can place orders. Do you care if I use your pattern for this endeavor (I tried to find a private email to ask you. I'm asking permission for both the baby, and child patterns.) llee1279@gmail.com October 25, 2010 6:35 PM Anneliese said... Laura, Thanks for asking about selling your hats It's fine with me if you'll give me credit--a link would be great. Congratulations on the interest and good luck! October 26, 2010 9:48 AM Katrina said... Hi. I just stumbled across your pattern and it's lovely. I just made one for my soon to be born baby girl. Thank you for sharing this pattern. November 8, 2010 3:41 PM Ruby Rocket said... I have make many of these adorable little hats in almost all of the sizes with requests for more. I would love to make one for myself and a few other adults. November 14, 2010 1:44 PM Sara said... This is a beautiful baby cloche pattern! I started a blog to keep track of the patterns I find on the web. So many creative bloggers! I hope you don't mind I linked to one of your photos w/ a short description and a link back here for the pattern. Thank you for sharing this lovely pattern! www.tangledhappy.blogspot.com November 17, 2010 9:27 PM Carl and Steph said... My mother made this for my little girl and I love it!! I am trying to make some more in different colors but keep coming out with too many stitches. I could have made 2 hats with all the undoing and redoing I've done. Any help??? November 19, 2010 11:11 PM Anneliese said... Steph, I would recommend counting your stitches after every row. If you find you have too many you can pull out and redo dropping one of the increases (or however many) to get the right count. If you count after every row hopefully you won't find yourself too far off and needing to undo several rows. I find crochet is very forgiving and since there isn't a pattern you need to match in the body of the hat you will be pretty safe improvising a bit to get the count right. I hope that helps! November 20, 2010 3:06 PM Carl and Steph said... Thanks! Especially for the tidbit that it doesn't have to be PERFECTLY done according to instructions. Just so long that the count is right. I'll start the next one tomorrow. November 20, 2010 8:56 PM Dawn said... REALLY cute hat! This is my second crochet project ever (been a knitter for years) and I dont understand this part: One hdc in same space as last sl st Im used to chain 2 then hdc in the next hdc below. but im not understanding what im supposed to do here. Dawn dawnr0@yahoo.com November 22, 2010 7:04 PM Tara said... I'm in love with this hat. Only problem is I don't know how to crochet. Wondering if there is a way to convert it from crochet to knit. Also I want to make one for myself. November 22, 2010 10:23 PM Dawn said... Finished the hat! :-) love it so much I am starting another one right now in black with a red flower. November 23, 2010 7:00 PM Jayna Rae said... I have made 4 of these in the past day that I discovered your pattern. One I altered the bottom to a rolled hem for my son. I am a boy mom. I have no clue what I will do with the rest. November 30, 2010 10:55 PM Carol said... Thank you for sharing this pattern! It is adorable! December 2, 2010 10:42 AM Donya said... Just came across your site a couple of days ago and am in love with this pattern. I've already made two and had to go buy yarn yesterday to make more. Thank you! December 25, 2010 5:43 PM Florida Cracker Girl said... I am new to crocheting and have mastered the DC, SC, but for some reason I am going wrong with the HDC, I get going and when its says to HDC (42) I have way more than 42... What am I doing wrong..lol Help Please! :) January 2, 2011 8:04 PM Anneliese said... @Florida Cracker girl: sorry to hear you are having trouble with the hdc. Here is a great online tutorial for that stitch: http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-half-double-crochet-stitches-hdc/ I would recommend counting your stitches at the end of each row to be sure you aren't accidentally increasing by working two hdcs in a stitch or working an hdc into an extra space (this is especially easy to do at the beginning and end of a round) so that you don't complete a number of rounds and find you are way off. Much easier to correct as you go than to undo several rows to find where things went awry. I often count as I am working as it focuses my attention on each stitch. I hope that helps! January 2, 2011 8:20 PM Anonymous said... I just stumbled upon this pattern while looking for a baby hat for my newest addition to come in a few days. I showed it to a friend who was able to complete it withing an hour! It came out amazing! I am a beginning beginner crocheter....so I will begin this tomorrow after reading more about a few of the stitches. Thank you for this great pattern! January 20, 2011 3:51 PM Jessica Molepske said... Very new to crocheting, but i've just got to try this out, so cute!! any tips? after row 5 my circle starts looking like it has a point after i've ch 2?? January 31, 2011 2:18 PM Beth- the mama bee said... Thanks for the tutorial! I made up a few of my own now! http://mamabeefromthehive.blogspot.com/2011/02/new-crochet-project-or-me-dealing-with.html February 10, 2011 6:41 AM Anonymous said... I found your pattern by good fortune today and just finished it tonight. I'm inspired by your website and can't wait to share this gorgeous little hat with my first grandaughter! Your instructions were very clear. Thank you! February 13, 2011 9:52 PM amy said... Love the hat, but I can not print the pdf instructions, could you e-mail them to me? weezer@net66.com thanks I want to these for charity that I crochet for. February 20, 2011 9:04 PM funwith4 said... I am wondering if it is all right to sell once made? I have no intentions of opening at Etsy store or whatever but I am looking for a couple cute patterns to make for a benefit auction but do not want to infrienge on any copyright, etc. February 23, 2011 7:39 AM Anneliese said... @funwith4: Thanks so much for asking. You are welcome to sell the hats you make with this pattern. If there is an opportunity to give me credit/link to the pattern that would be fantastic. Good luck with the auction! February 23, 2011 9:22 AM Megan said... Hey Anneliese! Just wanted to say I LOVE the pattern!! I made it in teal / blue / green for my friend when they didn't know the gender. I had the flower crocheted, but not tied on, with a note saying to attach if the baby was a girl (she was)! I was going to sell a couple in my etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/megncreations) and popped over to see copyright info. I see in the previous comments that you would like credit for the pattern, so I will definitely do that for you! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us all! February 25, 2011 5:59 PM Carolyn Gx said... Thank you Thank you! I'm making it now for my friend's baby. It's the cutest hat I could find on the web! March 8, 2011 10:06 PM Erica said... Love the hat and flower, however I'm having a hard time with a couple rows...i've followed the pattern exactly and my count is still coming up more than 49 even though my row 11 has 52. wondering why the need to hdc in the same row as sl st at the start of the row? March 19, 2011 10:29 PM Anneliese said... @Erica: Sorry to hear you're having trouble with the pattern. The slip stitch is akin to the turning chain in straight crochet, where you would then hdc the first stitch, rather than the next stitch. I wish I could look atg your work and help you identify what might be different from the pattern, HOWEVER, the only thing that really matters is that you are getting the right number of hdc at the end of each row and that your increases are evenly spaced. So if you have more than 49hdc at the end of row 7 try it without making one in the sl st (I sometimes accidentally put in an extra hdc at the end of the row--so that might be happening as well) and see if you get 49. If you still have too many you could drop one of the increases. I hope that helps! - Anneliese March 20, 2011 9:49 AM Erica said... Thanks for the help! Not sure what I was doing but I figured out the kink somehow....the 3rd time of undoing my row and starting over was a charm haha. This was the first pattern I followed and first hat I finished, so I definitely still consider myself a beginner. I've been trying out other patterns all night for a more "boy-ish" hat and I ended up coming back to this pattern because it just works the best. I'm learning not all patterns are created equal and I greatly appreciate the detail and accuracy in yours, THANKS!! March 22, 2011 8:38 PM Anneliese said... @Erica: That makes me so happy to hear! Yeah! By the way, this very evening I am working on a boy pattern. Hoping to have it "up" in the next week or two. Stay tuned! March 22, 2011 8:39 PM Jamie said... Thank you so much for this awesome pattern! I have already made one, and it ended up being too small for my daughter's head so I gave it to my other daughter for her dolls. :0) I am working on #2 and this time I followed your yarn size directions (didn't the first time!) so it should turn out right, I hope! I am linking you on my blog. :0) April 3, 2011 11:27 PM Jamie said... I finished it, I love it! Thank you so much for the tutorial! I linked you on my blog with a picture. April 7, 2011 10:03 PM Bex said... Thanks for this - It's very similar to my "standard" pattern for making hats, but the little bit of detail at the end of a small decrease and how to finish off with the pretty shells on the edge finishes things off very nicely. I have now made 3 of these in different sizes within the last 24 hours :D May 6, 2011 5:12 PM Lindy said... thank you for the flower pattern. found it on ravelry and it's the first one like this that I could read and get to work correctly! Great job. May 14, 2011 9:45 PM Anonymous said... I'm new to crochet and this is my first real project. I have a question...when working in rounds, does the seam usually curve or is there a way to make it come out straight? I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if that's just the way it's supposed to be. Thanks! May 31, 2011 7:09 PM Anneliese said... @Anonymous: The seams in the round always "drift"! It's a bit frustrating I have to say. I have searched for a solution and there doesn't seem to be one. So yes, you are doing it correctly. I have noticed they don't drift when doing increases but do when maintaining the same stitch count. I have come up with a way to make them drift less and will be posting a revision to this tutorial and pattern in the next few days--check back please. Thanks. May 31, 2011 9:30 PM Pondering said... I love your site and I even tried to crochet again. I haven't tried since I was a kid. Now I would love to have some projects to do at the beach in a couple of weeks. I started with the flower first thinking it was easier. The problem is I have no idea what the initials mean or even the stitches. Could you explain Round 2 as well as round 3 of the med flower. I am so confused. Any suggestions or maybe a you tube video I could watch? c_rhyne at bellsouth dot net June 30, 2011 3:15 PM Anneliese said... @Pondering: I'm so glad to hear you are trying crochet again. Patterns can sometimes seem like a foreign language! Here is a great place to start, it's a "how to crochet" series I just did for Tip Junkie, which includes explanations of all the stitches and abbreviations. Hopefully between this how-to and the tutorial here you will be on your way! Here are a couple of the TipJunkie links: • Step 2: Basic Crochet Stitches (http://www.tipjunkie.com/how-to-crochet-basic/) • Step 3: How To Double Crochet (http://www.tipjunkie.com/how-to-double-crochet/) June 30, 2011 9:10 PM Marchelle said... I love your crochet patterns! I just finished making this cloche, but I exchanged the flower in the pattern for a button and a couple of the poesies for which you recently posted a tutorial. You can see a picture of the final project on my ravelry account here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/marchellemalone/best-baby-cloche Thanks for such a great pattern!

Tonight I made this one and am just beside myself with how cute it turned out. Thank you so much for the pictures and directions. I have posted it to my blog http://poffenbarger.blogspot.com/. I put your link on the post so people would know where I got it from. I made my flower red. Thanks so much!! July 17, 2011 9:22 PM The B's said... Hi! What an amazing crafter you are! This cloche was just what I was searching for. But I am having the same problem as Melanie (commenter on Oct. 14). If I count the ch 2 as the first hdc, and follow the directions exactly, I get one more than I should. Would you send me your hints, too? =) Thank you! July 21, 2011 4:34 PM Elise Engh said... Hey, I just stumbled upon your blog and I'm loving all your crochet projects! Thanks for posting a tutorial and pattern here. I can't wait to try it out! http://growcreative.blogspot.com/ July 25, 2011 6:30 PM Anonymous said... I LOVE this pattern! I made a few for my then 7 month old last fall and got so many comments on them! She wore one every day! We just found out that the baby we are expecting this fall is another girl and I would love to make one for her for her newborn photoshoot. I have already made her one in the 0-3 month size but it still seems a little big for a newborn. Any ideas on how to make it smaller? Does the pattern need to be altered or should I just use a smaller hook? If a smaller hook is recommended, what size do you think would be best? Thanks so much for your help! You can contact me at thecampbellgirl_1 @ yahoo.com Thanks! August 14, 2011 7:31 AM Anneliese said... @Anonymous: I have found that Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton yarn is a smaller gauges. I would recommend trying it and going down a hook size. If it still seems not small enough you could eliminate one of the increase rows. Congratulations on the new baby!

I love this cloche, but I'm stuck on Round 12 of the 3-6 months size. Where it says "Hdc in the nex hdc and each of the next 14 hdc stitches," does that mean a total of 14 or 15 hdcs? Hope someone can help me! August 31, 2011 5:38 PM Anneliese said... @MLyle: The hdc in the sl stitch and the next hdc and the next 14 equal 16 hdc up until that point. I hope that helps! August 31, 2011 10:56 PM Dreichley said... Great pattern! Just wondering do we have permission to sell the finshed projects from your patterns? September 19, 2011 2:42 PM Anneliese said... @Dreichley: Thank you for asking. Yes, you may sell hats made from this pattern. I would appreciate it very much if you would give me credit for the pattern, however, with a link if possible. Thanks!
