Vintage Bobble Cloche

The elegant Vintage Bobble Cloche.

Ah, the Vintage Bobble Cloche, so highly addictive to make and then so statement-makingly striking to sport.  I adapted this pattern from a 1970s Crochet pamphlet someone didn’t know what else to do with, so they gave it to me.  Total score!

It has a 1920s feel to it. This one's made from Rowan Savannah.

This cloche is best made from yarns that are lightweight, yet have plenty of their own structure, like Rowan Savannah,  a cotton yarn with a silk thread twisted around it.  This way the bobbles have maximum three-dimensionality.
