Classic Inaugural Cloche


Classic Inaugural Cloche


Feel as glamorous as can be even when it's chilly out. This Classic Inaugural Cloche was designed to match a similar hat worn by an anchorwoman covering President Obama's election, and I must say - we love it! Once your hat is complete, you'll enjoy sporting this timeless piece every single day of winter. You will also need U.S. size 0 (24") circular needles to complete this project.


Knitting Needle Size1 or 2.25 mm, Circular Knitting Needles, Double-Pointed Knitting Needles (DPNs)

Yarn Weight(1) Super Fine (27-32 stitches to 4 inches)

Obama is out and Trump is in now so its time to pull out some Trump patterns. I am sure someone can duplicate an item worn to this new partys inauguration? This is a lovely hat and I am USA all the way. As the designer of this hat states this is the little black dress of hats. If made in the correct color this could match all of your outfits.

I have not made the hat yet but the instructions looks fairly simple. I like knitting with small needles. It adds a nice texture to the finished product. Of course this won't be a quickie pattern because of the size of the needles but this will be a hat that will hold its shape and last. I like the border the best with the tie. You can also do it in a coordinating color. Thank you.

I was interested in this pattern, and when I looked at the original I saw that the yarn weight listed above on this page is incorrect. The Rowan yarn used for the hat pattern is actually fingering weight or super fine (1). That weight would make sense also with the small size 1 needles.

Hello 3cats2love, we have adjusted the yarn weight for this pattern. Thank you for bringing this to our attention! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
