what a way cool website!  Everything I ever wanted to know about period style hats & hair.  Looking at the pics I think what my gram left me was c. 1931 or 1932.  thanks again!

I have a vintage cloche pattern from 1931:

(I apologize for the quality of the picture)

I'm guessing that the pattern gives two different versions of the same hat, because there's another picture that shows the hat with crocheted leaves instead of ribbons. In any case, you could probably leave the embellishments out, if you'd like.

Here are the hat's stats:
Measurements: Round head band--22 inches. Can be arranged for a slightly smaller size or to 23 inches.
Depth from the center of the crown to the edge of the front--8 inches.
Depth from the center of the crown to the lower edge of the back--9 inches.

Tension: 10 d.c. to 1 in. in width
10 rows to 1 in. in depth.

If you're interested, let me know and I'll type up the rest of the pattern for you.

I know I would be! Would it be possible to scan it?
Wanna trade for some of my 20's-30's sweater patterns?  Smiley

Alright. I've just finished typing this up into a word document. If you want the instructions, e-mail me and I'll send you the document as an attachment: mlle_gigolette@hotmail.com. All I ask is that you don't sell the pattern.

My scanner's down at the moment, but as soon as it's fixed, I'll scan the second picture of the hat (the one that shows the crocheted leaves).

Also: If anyone runs into any problems with the pattern, let me know and I'll see if I wrote it down correctly. I've proofread this a couple of times, but you can never be too sure.

I just sent you two the pattern! I hope everything works out, and I'd love to see what it looks like when it's done. I kind of wish I was a better crocheter, so that I could try my hand at this too.

And I'd love to see your sweater patterns from this era, cmoore! Once my scanner starts working again, I can start scanning a few of the ones that I've got. I think it'd be kind of cool if there was a vintage sweater knitalong.

Thanks again for the pattern. Here are a few of my pattern picture scans...









Gotta love that bathing suit.
I know they are quite large; I had scanned them for something else and needed large images.
BTW, I did make the one on the cover of the Needlecraft magazine, it turned out nicely-changed the ruffle though.
