Belliveau Cove Cloche

Crochet, Project #113

I just loved this seamless hat pattern, which called for one of my favorite all-time yarns (that would be Lamb’s Pride Bulky) and the shell stitch. I used leftover yarn from the One Row (But Not One Skein) Ascot to make the flower decoration. Together, this is a smashing set, very feminine and toasty. It was quick to crochet and indeed stylish, as promised.
