1920's Caramel Cloche Hat Crochet Pattern

As much as I adore bold, bright colours I also appreciate the simplicity and sophistication that neutral colours have to offer. 
So when it came down to the hard choice of what colours and textures to use while creating this hat, I couldn't think of a better option than a warm caramel!

  5. I don't understand the button flaps. Do you actually put them on the side of the hat that you have already crocheted? I have made many hats, but haven't run into this before. Please reply. I am almost finished with the hat. Thanks.

  6. For the top button flap, is it necessary to fasten off after the second row? If so, where do we re-attach the yarn, top or bottom? Thanks! I hope you see this soon, as I am making the hat for a craft show coming up. =)

  7. Row 12....
    Repeat the pattern 11 times... not 13? Anyways... that's what I did and ended up with 85 stitches and a completed round.

    1. YES - that's what I got, only it's ROUND 10, not ROUND 12. It's crucial that you have 85 at the end of Round 10, though, so somehow make that happen. THEN on Round 11, I swear it should read: Repeat from the * 13 times (not 14). And remember, that's also Rounds 13, 15, 17, 19, and 21. Once you get going on that it will be clear. Haven't done the flaps yet.

  8. Could I eliminate the button opening by crocheting this shut or should I try to work in rounds?

  9. I am not clear as to how and where to put the button flaps and which direction to crochet the single crochet . Could you explain a bit further?
    Thanks

  12. I am loving all of your sweet patterns. I just recently got back into this addicting habit and so appreciate your helpful tutorials. You have a beautiful talent in crochet! Thank you.

  13. The photos of the finished piece are so cute! I came across a snag though, in row 10 I was only able to repeat the pattern eleven times before the final 4 HDC's and 2 HDC's in the same stitch, but I still ended up with 85 stitches... Anyone else encounter this? Thanks!

    1. Yes, I had the same problem. I was glad to see that someone else had the same problem so I could feel okay about moving on.

    2. Me, too. I ripped this hat out five times between my own mistakes and hers. I'm on the right track now, though. I think Round 11 (and all subsequent odd numbered rows) is wrong, too, with 13 times instead of 14.

  14. Just a note to future crocheters to check the comments as there are a couple of errors in the pattern.

  15. Hi there, I don't know what I did wrong. Followed instructions to a T, but my hat could fit a watermelon...lol. Anyways, I like the pattern but don't know what went wrong. Any suggestions???

    1. Hello!
      Check your gauge? That might be the reason :)

  16. Hi Olivia. I have made this hat and it came out beautifully. If you were to crochet this in the round without using the button flaps could you please advise what to crochet in the gap where the button flap would have been. Thanks so much.

  17. I want to make this but I'ma bit worried about the pattern errors here😥😥😥

  18. The pattern seems ok if you realize that where it says "repeat so many times" she actually is giving the number total, repeats would be one less, but also that row 10 is the pattern 11x total. I'm currently in the row 13-22 section. I'm slightly skeptical about the size but my gauge appears to be correct.

  19. Hello: I'm presently crocheting this hat & it seems to be a little large. I'm working with worsted weight yarn & wondering if the yarn you used was more like DK?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, there were a few errors with this pattern. I made it once and found it was very large, so I stopped increasing at the row where there were 5 sc inbetween the increases. The finished hat is ok, but still a bit large. I'm going to make changes and stop at the 4 sc row and then do a row with only an increase of 3. That should take care of the sizes issue. I love the way this hat looks and fits. It's a brillant and stylish idea. Thanks!!
