This fingering weight cloche hat is crocheted in the round from the crown down to the brim making it seamless. It is simple to make but a bit of concentration may be needed when working the chin strap loops inside.

The hat bands are fully adjustible in size & decorated with a fun crocheted tassel flower that is easily re-positioned anywhere around the hat depending on your preference. The optional chin strap is competely removable & fully adjustable to ensure a comfortable fit.
