Bold Vintage Crochet Hat Inspiration!

At the moment, I am experiencing a renewed enthusiasm for hats, and I have been inspired by some photos of bold vintage hats I have found.  While the styles may not be relevant in today's fashion scene, I really admire the "oomph" they have.  I wish I could pull off wearing a snood, with what appears to be a skein of yarn as a crown on top.  It would be a fun way to use a skein of yarn I have been saving, because it looks too beautiful to open up and wind it into a ball!

I love the cascading ribbon bow on this over the top funnel hat.  I wonder how many women actually made this hat.  They must have turned heads wherever they wore it!

As one who has spent a lot of time in vintage clothing stores, I am surprised that I just discovered these 1950's "Bangle" hats.   There was a whole series of crochet patterns created using these oversized sequins!

This hat is simple and elegant and the bow is the perfect embellishment.  This would have looked smart with a fitted suit.


  1. Wow, they really wore some wild hats! I like the last one, the bow may become a hybrid for me! Thanks for sharing!

  2. These are amazing! That top photo makes me want to put my yarn on my head!
