Sartorial historians believe that the cloche was popular with 1920s flappers because of the proud gaze it required of its wearer--chin tilted skyward and eyes peering down the nose. This version features a double-strand of a lustrous mohair loop and is slightly felted to fit the wearer.

New Ravelry download includes slight updates in response to a common complaint that the cloche is a bit short. Hope the revision helps!
