My inspiration for this crochet cloche hat pattern was the 1920's flapper hat. I have always loved the sleek style of the jazz age, and the retro bucket/cloche hats of that generation are totally rockin!
Fact: Did you know that The word 'cloche' is French for the word bell which the hat was modeled after? I learned that while doing research for this crochet hat pattern.
Another Cool Tidbit: Did you know that most women in the 1920's wouldn't even leave their houses without a hat on? It’s totally weird but it’s also fascinating how the flapper culture was way back then.
It’s my hope that you find that this crochet cloche hat design represents the stylistic 1920's era!
