This sweet cloche is made with a bell-shaped brim & finished off with a beautiful bow!  You can also use this hat as a handy drawstring bag in a pinch!

Notes
1.  The hat is worked in continuous rounds.  Place stitch marker to mark beginning of each round.

Other Suggestions
  1. Work the final round in RSC (reverse single crochet/crab stitch) for a fun “rope” edging.
  2. Use a fun variegated or self-striping yarn for a colorful hat.
  3. Use cotton yarn for a cool summer hat.
  4. Add pins, brooches, ribbons, or buttons to your hat to make it unique.
  5. Flip the hat upside down & use the ribbon to cinch it into a little purse!
