Vintage Hat Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite things to buy when I head to the bookstore with Husband is crafting and crochet magazines. A few months ago I bought “Love of Crochet” magazine’s Fall issue and in it was a Vintage Hat pattern that I have used a ton of times already. I’m not kidding- I’ve made 7 of these hats already! They are SUPER easy and work up very quickly, so I can knock one out in under two hours, making them fantastic Christmas gifts. Continue reading Vintage Hat Crochet Pattern
