1920's Snowflake Cloche Hat Crochet Pattern

I've always believed that we are all like snowflakes, different in our own unique and beautiful way!

Sadly I know most people don't realize just how special they are, due to horrible circumstances such as bullying, poverty, slavery or abuse. 
However, whether they feel lonely, unloved or unintelligent doesn't mean they are any less valuable. Every person is precious, and should be treated accordingly. 

As Einstein once said, "The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." Yes, I agree it's extremely hard to be brave enough to stand up against unfair treatment of another human being, which is why I love how Audrey Hepburn put it.. "As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
After all, a true act of kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of ever getting anything in return...

    1. Try self striping yarn. It changes color by fading from one color to another very gradually in very long stripes. Try googling it.

  5. I love your pattern! Two questions: Is the Drops Paris yarn 150 worsted yarn cotton? And when I google Drops Paris yarn I don't see the Sky Blue color? Where can I order the Drops yarn you used?

    2. I followed the pattern and it didn't turn out like the hat that is shown. It was a different look and it was definitely not a cloche. Is this the right pattern to the picture of the hat you posted?

  8. Thanks for the pattern and the video on making a camel stitch. This is great and I have to try making a hat or two for my granddaughters, maybe more if they love them.. I only wonder why someone as beautiful as you doesn't smile in any of these pictures. I just know that you have a beautiful smile and I would love to see that. The idea of making these for someone who is going through chemo is a great idea from the poster before me. Thanks again.

  11. Thank you SO much for a wonderful tutorial! I will probably have to come back once I'm actually crocheting but now feel confident.

    Rewriting the pattern will require me to come back. LOL
