Hat patterns, part 2

Here are some rather nice hats from the 30's and 40's that are either knitted or in crochet. I’m a bad knitter and I have never been able to fathom crochet, but perhaps a hat would be a good project to start with. I really like that so many of these hats have a matching bag to go with them.

I should start wearing hats! Decorative ones I mean, I wear practical hats - I'm knitting a beret right now.

Oh! I want the Gay Duet hat!
I can't crochet eitehr, but I trust that my friend and neighbour Anna can teach me - she can do anything.

The Pigtail reminds me of the Predator from the films of the same name...

Was just about to start crocheting a new hat and was looking for a pattern so this was very timely!

Eva said...

And the pillbox hat - want that one too!

I've been drooling over those 30's berets for so long!

Isis said...

monika: I would like to do that too!

Eva: I suppose it isn't so hard, really, but I never really grasped it. Perhaps I should try again because there are a lot of nice patterns I'd like to have!

Betty B: LOL- yes, I can see that... And you will have to post your new hats!

garofit: I'm sur ethey would suit you prefectly!

Oh, I like the turbans and the Checchia hat. I regularly drool over the insane turbans in the Kyoto Fashion Institute collections - http://www.kci.or.jp/archives/digital_archives/detail_159_e.html - perhaps I should try something like that out...

Isis said...

pimpinett: Do, do! I'm too self-concious for turbans so I have to enjoy them on others! :)

I have been thinking about the little hat with the flowers in the first picture for years-I collect patterns online and save the images for later. All the crocheted bags are soo lovely. A beret is so fun, and simple to make-It only takes a couple of hours. I can show you or help you crochet one if you like! There is a lovely little yarnshop at Roslagsnäsby called Trassel. Maybe next time we can meet up by the shop?

Lillgull: Oh I'd love to learn if you think you have the patience to teach me. I have never been to Trassel, so why not. :)
