You really have to hand it to women in the 1940’s – they liked their suits tailored, and their hats different!
Wouldn’t life be a touch more whimsical if we got to wear amazingly over-the-top hats everyday – and get stared at in admiration instead of curiosity?
Today’s free vintage knitting (crochet) pattern comes from an unknown source – the pattern book is missing it’s cover. I believe it was made by ‘Dritz’, probably in 1946.
The crochet hat/turban requires Dritz Knitting Worsted (not Corde for a change) and i’m still not sure what those decorations are? Either way, I would love to wear something like this to Viva Las Vegas next year.
Do Santa’s elves know how to crochet?
I hope you like it!
