This is from Stitchcraft magazine, May 1966 Issue.

I love the idea that it's for summer holidays, must say something about UK summer temperatures!




And here's an advert from the same issue, I love the way that just anything could be related to the space race:



And a crocheted hat from the August 1966 issue:

I love your posts.  I like the first version of the hat with just the bill as opposed to a full brim.

Me for the full brim! NOT white, though...

Charming stuff Grin

I'm guessing "travel hat" was another way to say "squishable"

I love the one on the color picture ! I also love the fact that at that time you had to travel elegant. No way for wearing shorts, old t-shirts and ugly Birckenstock shoes when travelling back in those days. I want a time machine, pleaaaaase !  Wink
