It only took one look for our Community to fall head over heels for these incredibly gorgeous Crochet Cloche Hats.
At first, we believed they were Panama Crochet Hat but it turns out that the official description is Cloche Hats. Either way, they are super cute and you are going to love making them.
We’ve rounded up the best ever collection for you to peruse and there are lots of free patterns and you can even purchase readymade.

These gorgeous Crochet Cloche Hats are just some of the designs that are available on Etsy. The store Tiny Mimi Mimi has a long list of happy customers who have purchased their readymade designs as gifts. They come in an assortment of beautiful colors too.
What has captured the heart of everyone who has seen them is the very fine detail in the stitch.
The slight brim is so flattering and you can make this Crochet Cloche Hat for any age at all. We recently featured some 3D Crochet Flowers that would work well with this design.
