Day 39: Pretty Pillbox Vintage Hat

I’m stuck on a huge vintage kick! I’ve been looking everywhere for a decent pillbox hat pattern. I just couldn’t find one :(. So I made one!

What you will need
5.5mm hook
Bernat, Vickie Howell Sheepish (I used two strands at once)
Tapestry needle
Buttons or embellishments(I used my grandmothers buttons so they were literally vintage)

This pattern mainly uses single crochet. It also calls for back loop only(BLO) and front loop only(FLO)

This hat features the Robertsons Ridge Technique
