Erte Cloche


Erte Cloche Main image

The Erte cloche is inspired by the beautiful hats of the 1920s. This one can be worked with a contrasting brim facing which, if done carefully, creates a reversible hat. Knit up the flowers or wear unadorned, either way, the look is feminine and classic without being dated.

This hat pattern is available for $5.25
