Flower Cloche Hat

The cloche (lit. lampshade) is a style of beanie that has a downturned brim. This one is made using a lighter yarn but with denser stitches. The end result is that it will be better for a windier day. Also, the tight weave makes it better suited to an elegant outfit than something more airy. The little flower applique, finally, is a beautiful and crowning touch.
