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.
Red heart super saver solids or any worsted yarn.
Tapestry needle.
Buttons or embellishments.

This pattern mainly uses single crochet. It also calls for back loop only(BLO) and front loop only(FLO)
For video tutorial on how to crochet in FLO and BLO click HERE.

This hat features the Robertsons Ridge Technique

  1. I just made a hat using your pattern and it’s super easy to follow! My yarn is not stiff enough for the hat to hold its shape so it will need to be reinforced, possibly with stiff felt underneath. Thanks for the great pattern!
