New Calleigh Cloche

Spring time is almost here!!! I love making my Calleigh a fun spring time hat around Easter time.
 I found some cotton yarn in my stash I'd purchased over a year ago for another project that I didn't do. The yarn color matched the new outfit she had perfectly so I went to work designing!
 I really love this cloche and so did she! I hope you will enjoy it too! 

It's a pretty basic hat at the start with some added texture and floral detailing 
just perfect for the season.

Thank you for this hat pattern! My SIL has cancer and has commissioned me to make her some cloches so the timing is perfect! :)
