Free Crochet Pattern for Sweetheart Cloche

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it seemed an appropriate time to make a free crochet pattern for this sweet cloche hat. I had a little girl in mind when I designed it but this would work well for teens and adults too. It is also a perfect hat for a chemo cap. I love to design things that are versatile and can take on a whole new personality with just a few changes.

I designed this hat with a basic double crochet cluster. Really it is like working dc2tog, but the stitches are worked in-between the stitches of the previous round versus in the traditional spot. For the pink hat I added some surface stitching to make the colors pop, but on the adult version I opted for a contrasting band with a simple strand of yarn tied in a bow.

Border: Turn so that inside of hat is facing you, ch 1, [sc, dc, tr, all in the next stitch, skip 2], repeat to end –skip an extra st in the last repeat, join to beg sc. Fasten off.
To work surface crochet, you will sl st over the top of the sc in the band. Join Contrasting Color from inside of hat to outside, sl st loosely over the sc you worked in the band rows. I did 2 rows of surface crochet, but you could add more if you like.

Heart:
Round 1: With Contrasting Color, ch 2, 9 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join to first sc. (9)
Round 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each st around, join to first sc. (18)
Round 3: 2 sc in next st, [hdc, dc] in next st, [hdc, sc] in next st, sc next 3 sts, hdc next 2 sts, [dc, ch1, dc] in next ch; hdc next 2 sts, sc next 3 sts, [sc, hdc] in next st, [dc, hdc] in next st, 2 sc in next st, sl st in next st. (25)
Round 4: Sl st in next st, 2 sc in next st, 2 hdc in next 2 sts, hdc next st, sc next 7 sts, [hdc, ch 1, hdc] in ch1 space of point, sc next 7 sts, hdc next st, 2 hdc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, sl st next st. Fasten off.

If desired use Main Color to surface crochet a border around the heart and tie a bow in the center. Sew heart to hat.

    No one had brought it to my attention 🙁

  2. Amber

    Thank you so very much! It worked out well! Such a wonderful pattern! Am I the first one to make the heart? Lol you’d think someone else would’ve noticed a long time ago :p

  3. CrochetZone

    You are absolutely correct, the pattern for the heart was not correct. I’ve updated it now, let me know how it works for you 🙂

  4. Amber

    Okay, I have finished the hat, now I’m stuck on the heart. Your pattern says to sl st in the 2nd St from the hook to begin the heart. I’m clueless because it does not specify what st that would be. Do you make a ch first? How many chains? Does it refer to a st in the hat? If so, what st? I’m lost! TIA 🙂

  5. CrochetZone

    I actually mean the top of the beginning cluster, which is the combination of the beginning ch2 and first dc. Thanks for letting me know.

  6. Gillian

    Row 3: Ch 2, dc in same space (this is the beginning cluster in this row and throughout), cluster in next 2 spaces, 2 clusters in next space, [cluster in next 3 spaces, 2 clusters in next space] 4 times, join to top of beg hdc. (25 clusters)

    I take it by dc you mean a hdc? Or when you say joint to top of beg hdc do you mean dc?

  7. CrochetZone

    Thank you so much.

    I love this hat. Thank you for the pattern.
