Short Hair Aspiration – Vintage Style

On the weekend we braved the crowds (and a Royal visit) to check out Sculpture By the Sea. It was so hot, muggy and packed with people – even at 9am!

I would love these Easter Island heads – arnt they tiki-tastic?












The heat really made me think about what to do with my hair (hello head scarf). I would really love to grow my hair into the hairstyle below – isnt it divine? It looks pretty easy to maintain as well.


She’s from Stitchcraft June 1949. I think I’m going to take the picture with me when I go see my hairdresser in a few weeks.
And here’s the knitting pattern for the top as well…

    When my hair is short, that is my go-to style. Known as a “Baby” cut.

    This is a similar style that I did with mine a while ago šŸ˜€


    It'll suit you SO much.. and yes, is very easy to maintain šŸ˜€

    Thank you so much for this pattern! There's a grossly over-sized 'update' of it in Jane Waller's 'Knitting patterns of the 1940s', which I've been trying to downsize again to borrow the stitch pattern (myself and a few other ravelers in the 'Foyle's War' group have been trying to recreate one of the cardigans from the series with a very similar sprayed bobble stitch). This is a huge help, so thanks again šŸ™‚
