Cloche Hat Free Knitting Patterns

Cloche Hat Knitting Patterns, many free knitting patterns - reversible cloches, Art Deco details, retro and modern cloches

I just finished reading One Summer:America, 1927 by Bill Bryson I love Bill Bryson’s histories and am fascinated by the 20s. That inspired me to put together a collection of cloche knitting patterns after the hat style popular in the 20s.

The cloche style brings to mind the Roaring Twenties, flappers, Art Deco. Created by milliner Caroline Reboux, the fitted hat with a brim low on the forehead formed a “bell”, the meaning of “cloche” in French.

But as you can see in the modern patterns below, the cloche is timeless in its flattering style.
