This hat, inspired by the millinery of the 1920’s is the first in the Vintage Hat Collection, a collection of knitted hats inspired by the millinery styles of different eras, from Edwardian to the 1950s.

There is a reason that the cloche was the most popular hat shape in the twenties and later - it looks good on every face shape, and flatters everyone who puts it on. Turn up the brim in the front, or in the back, or on the side - each way gives a different look, all of them flattering, framing the face in different ways.

Yardage requirements listed above are divided like this: 120 (130, 145, 155, 165) yards MC and 30 yards CC aran weight yarn
