I couldn't resist making more of these little hats. The "Best Little Girl Cloche" is such an easy pattern. I love this upsized version of the Best Baby Cloche. In fact, it makes me want to do an adult size--I think I'd like a cloche myself...
I thought it would be fun to work up a cloche for each of my girls and nieces--a little back-to-school send off for the bunch, well, except for Scarlett who gets to stay home with mommy another year.
Audrey picked purple (of course) for her cousin, Kate and herself. This is the same Lily SugarN'Cream yarn I used, in the same shade (Hot Purple), for her shell dress. These are the 3-4 year size with a large (9-petal) flower.
My niece, Grace, is wearing the 5-6 year size with the large flower. I love the contrast flower--so many possibilities... I would love orange and pink, turquoise and acqua, brown and coral...
Scarlett is in the 18-24 month size with the medium (7-petal) flower. I kept it all one color for easier outfit matching this Fall.
I'd like to make a few more of these for my girls, especially since they seem to like wearing them.
You can find the pattern for the Best Little Girl Cloche here.
You can find a tutorial for the Best Baby Cloche (the smaller version of this hat), which would arm you to tackle this one too, here.
