Bella's Beads Cloche Hat knitting pattern - PDF
Knit your own Bella's Beads Cloche Hat using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designers Jackie E-S and Laura Andersson, published by HeartStrings FiberArts.
This hat is a flapper style, inspired by the movie "Agatha" with Vanessa Redgrave. Women in the 20's and 30's wore these lovely cloche hats. Laura envisioned one with a beaded band ... which started us on the way to creating this hat design. A second inspiration was a biography of Bella Abzug, a politican who did a lot for women's issues. Bella was famous for always wearing a hat hence Bella's Beads.
