Subversive Femme

Buttoned for Fashion – a very original, very individual hat. c. 1945

I’m very excited about finally getting my hands on a Hiawatha Hats & Bag book (available on Etsy now), so I have to share one of the patterns with you as todays free vintage pattern!






Hiawatha books are the cream of the crop for 1940s hats and bags – fashion forward and very stylish. Very expensive to collect too!

I hope you like this sweet crocheted cap – the little horns/bows are covered in shell buttons and perch delicately on the head. The cap is held in place with pins.

Hiawatha Strawlite is discontinued, but a good substitute would be a fingering weight yarn with a firmness, like linen or hemp.
If anyone does make this I would love to see it!
