Free Spring Crochet Hat Pattern Beverly’s Cloche in Vanna’s Choice

Free Spring Crochet Hat Pattern
Beverly’s Cloche In Vanna’s Choice

This hat is inspired by the cloches of the 1920’s “flapper” era.  Simply stated cloche is defined as a “bell” shape.  As such, a true cloche hat will resemble a bell.  This hat is worn fitted and snug.  Most cloches were trimmed and adorned with a large flower. How you chose you decorate your cloche is up to you.  You can visit our flower repository for some flower idea’s or even come up with your own embellishment.  The possibilities are endless.

This hat can easily be made into any size.  The article on how to design your own custom crochet hat is an awesome sizing guide for making hats.  If you have any questions please comment below or email me at

I recommend using my seamless method.  My seamless methods can be found here, follow the instructions for the second method in the hdc rows and when changing colors and use the first method for the sc rows.

You can do the hat, border and trim in any combination of colors that you like, the hat consists of 13 rows of hdc (totaling 45hdc at 5th row) followed by 5 rows of 45sc, one more row of 45hdc followed by one row of 90dc for brim and 1 row of 90sc for trim, brim is ended in one row of 90 sl st.  Color changes can be made anywhere.  I made one of the models using two colors for the border and one using only one color, along with using trim color on one and not on the other.


1st round= 1 ¼”
2nd round= 2 inches (each subsequent round = 1″)
Flat circle (at the end of round 5)= 5″

    I made Beverly’s Cloche and did not have those spaces as seen in the above photo. I loved the look of it! How did you achieheve those spaces? P.S. Thanks so much for the lovely patterns.

      Your welcome… I’m not sure what you mean by spaces? Do you mean between the stitches? You may just crochet differently than me. I tend to hold my yarn with minimal tension… also did you use Vanna’s Choice? Vanna’s yarn works up a little differently than other worsted weight yarns. Thank you!

    Wow, this is one of the most beautiful cloches I’ve seen in a long time. I just love the colors, and the spring blossom really makes them pop! I can’t wait to try this pattern. Thank you so much for posting this.

    Hi, love your hats! :}
    So… I have a bit (ok, a lot) of a 20’s style fetish, and I really want to make one of these because they’re so pretty looking. But… I don’t have the Vanna’s Choice yarn, which I might get someday because I really would like to make this. What I do have is a nice dark purple Jiffy yarn by Lion Brand. And I thought it would make a nice cloche hat because, not only is it warm but it kindof reminds me of the wool felted hats that were popular then. And, as eager as I was to try to make this hat, it hasn’t come out the right size. Obviously because of the yarn difference and all.. I like to try to experiment.’s the question- would you know, by any chance if there’s any way I could make a really good cloche hat using the Jiffy yarn? Just wondering.. Any help will do. Thanks. ^_^

    Oh, no problem. I have been trying to work on this hat for quite a while, but I think I got it down pat. Just about done with it, and I’ve tweaked round or two of your pattern for the blue hat on the top, (and lots of trying it on) to see how it will fit and so forth. I did Rnds 1-5, and repeated Rnd 5, but with 1hdc in the next 4 sts, and 2 hdc in the next st around. Then I proceeded to do the 1 hdc in each st around for the next 8 or 9 Rnds. Then, right before I got to the band part, I took out one round, and working the opposite way, I made what is supposed to look like the beginning of the band. That was with the Jiffy yarn. Then the next rnd, I’ve been wanting to have a nice black band to go with it, which was about 3 or 4 rnds of the Caron Simply Soft. Then right after that, the same rnd of the Jiffy yarn, as the band. Then, where I am now, is the brim. So, my finicky hat is almost done. All that was done with an I Hook (because I sorta have a big head. Runs in the family) :p I’ll put up a pic when it’s done.
    Thanks a bunch! :)

    Hi! Love the hat! However… I followed this to a t and it came out child size. I triple checked everything and don’t understand… the result was cute, but too small for a bald adult. Perfect for a child.

      You’ll have to figure out what size you’ll need by checking your gauge. Start with the size recommended in the pattern.

    I go by the name of Mamma Alice at craft shows. Would like to print more than one pattern at a time and take 9 pages to do so! Suggestions? Your hats and other crochet items are great and would make popular additions to my table if they were easier to get to. THANKS for what you do.

      Alice, I’m in the process of adding print options to all of my patterns, advertising free for $1. This is to offset the revenue lost when a pattern is printed and a visit to my site is not requires. I am able to provide my patterns for free only because of the small amount of revenue I make on my blog with advertising. If you would like to purchase a $1 advertising free pdf of this pattern, just let me know and I’ll make one up for you.
