Hat Head, Part One

In a few weeks, a very special chapeau shall be arriving.  In the mean-time, I can't stop staring at images that reflect the style of close-to-the-head earlier 30s hat I have been longing for (for the millionth time, I say to myself, "get crocheting and knitting, Baroness!".  Examples of lovely caps abound in this 30s crocheting booklet.

Ha! I started a pretty pink beret last week. Only time will tell if my knitting will be wearable. =D

Lovely images, I especially love the last one! Makes me want to learn to knit...my mother-in-law tried to teach me last year, but I couldn't get past a straight line (if that makes sense).

Oooh ever so pretty! That'll be nice if I find out how to get the matching hairdo. :-/

Bella said...

Fabulous! So, so pretty. I'd love to learn to make one.

Oh, that Russian turban scarf hat would suit me just fine. Lovely.

Oh boy, those are great. I'm just learning how to knit. I'd love to try and make one of those. Are there patterns available from that magazine?

Darlene said...

And you KNIT too? Cripes, you're a one-woman renaissance! Yay! Gorgeous haberdashes!

Thanks, Keith!

Avalon76: ooh, a pink beret sounds wonderful!

Sirens Sexy: I'm in that same knitting boat. Still learning how to increase and decrease, etc.

superheidi: me too. My end rolls never look right

Bella: I know what you mean! I really really want to make one but I am still trying to learn to read vintage knitting patterns.

Celestial: I LOVE that one!

Mary van note: yep, there are vintage patterns in this booklet. I'll try to post some actual patterns in the future.

Darlene: I am indeed a fledgling knitter. Crocheting still freaks me out. I am *trying* to learn new things all the time...if only I had the time and ability to turn all my dreams and schemes into reality. xoxo.

Oh my. These are all so wonderful!! Thanks for sharing. I need to get my mum to teach me how to crochet (which she keeps telling me is easier but I don't see how you can make anything work with only one hook lol)

Yes baroness, exactly the problem. Nice and wavy on top and than it all ends is something sad. :-D

casey said...

Oh my! These are making me drool! I have to admit, I was excited when I read your comment reply that you might post some of the patterns in the future! :D

superheidi: ONE day we'll figure out those end rolls! ;)

Casey: I first need a decent scanner. Hopefully you enjoyed the one little pattern I have since posted!

Eep! I just stumbled on this from your other post on crochet. These are DIVINE. I'd love to see instructions someday :D

Beautiful.

I have pictures of my grandmother from the 30s. Love looking at her clothes and hats.
