Butterfly Cloche

Look at my 9 month old Punky Noodle
in her new Butterfly Cloche.
And how about those pnchable cheeks,
 baby blues and two pearly whites?
I have always been intrigued in the hats made with the little "butterflies" formed by making chains and then pulling them together to look like a butterfly.

I like how the butterflies look from the side.
The hat is made to have a butterfly over each ear
and one in the front.
But, if you have followed me long enough, you know I can't make something the normal way. I wanted my butterflies to be a different color, and texture, than the hat, so I combined sock yarn (because that was what I had in the basket next to my chair) and some #3 thread for the butterflies. 
A little better look at the side of the hat.
Pretty happy with the outcome. What do you think?

Here's the front . . .
reminds me of the old fashioned turban hats women wore.
If you would like to buy the pattern, it is available for $1.99 in my Ravelry Store, "The Fur~Babies Momma." Just click the buy now button to be transported to my shop.

 ***100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to Natalie's 2nd Chance Shelter, a no-kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana. It is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization***
