I wrote this cloche pattern while designing a gift for my friend Ciara. It's a great lightweight style that works well to hold the hair back on a windy day or keep your head warmer on a cool day. It has a fun cluster mesh design that is intricate enough to leave alone, but looks great with a decorative accent such as a flower as well.
