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)
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!
