Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

This baby hat is ALMOST finished. I just need to sew on the flower, but as I’m too busy following the election happenings on twitter to sew it on, I’m blogging WIP Wednesday and saving that for another day.

Flower Cloche
This is the Lion Brand Yarn free pattern Cloche with Small Flower. I just learned what a cloche is – a fitted, bell-shaped hat invented by Caroline Reboux in 1908. The name is from the French word for “bell”…but, you probably already knew that.

Mine raveled here

Ps. Check out what other folks are working on at Tami’s Amis.

    You do such nice work. Perhaps I should commission you for a pair of socks and a baby hat! Seriously, let me know if you are interested!

      Thank you! …maybe socks, but I’m just about done with cute baby hats. I know lots of babies just now. :)

    I did not know the history or etiology of a cloche. :-D Thanks for teaching me.

  3. Lovely little flower. Looks like an Irish Rose motif :)

      Thanks! I thought so too. There was a large flower option, but it looked a bit much in my opinion.
