The Cora Cloche

Last May on our drive to Cape Cod, I knit Isabelle The Cora Cloche. At the time, I was 7 months pregnant and dreaming of how adorable my baby would look in the hat. Yesterday, I got the chance to finally see her in it.

I knit the cloche out of a white cotton yarn from my stash. Not sure what the brand is. The ribbon is a 1-1/2" wide pink satin. I wish I could tie bows better.

I didn't get a great picture from far back to show the full effect of the lace details and the ruffle gathering near the bow. But, with a baby on the move, this was as good as it will get for now. :-)

On a personal mom note, I recently started cloth diapering using bumGenious and LOVE it! My only regret is that I didn't start sooner. The upfront cost can be a deterrent, but the diapers will eventually pay for themselves from the cost savings of not having to buy disposables. Anyway, if you're considering cloth diapers, I highly recommend giving this brand a try. I bought mine at Cotton Babies and plan to buy more at a local shop in Troy, OH called samozrejme this weekend!


  1. She is such a cutie pie! And the hat is beautiful, too. Great job, Sarah!

  2. oh my goodness Sarah, that is the sweetest little baby hat ever! She is adorable.
