Merino 5

1920s-Style Crocheted Cloche

Designed by Cathy Campbell for Crystal Palace Yarns

 

Description:  I am a big fan of the 1920's cloche; it adds a certain "Je ne sais quoi" to an outfit.  This pattern uses basic single crochet stitches, increasing and decreasing.  Pair this with the Merino 5 Crocheted Fingerless Gloves for a super stylish look!
