1920's Jewel Flapper Hat Crochet Pattern

The other day I was lucky enough to discover the most beautiful filigree vintage brooch, and if you know me, you'll know that vintage things are by far my greatest weakness!
Once I had the brooch in my possession, dozens of 1920's design ideas started flooding in, and I couldn't help but create this jeweled flapper hat!
Are you also a big fan of all things vintage?



What You'll Need

100g Bulky Yarn {12ply} - I used Lincraft Veronica

Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Taking your tapestry needle and some yarn, sew the 5 chained sections together in the center.
Now sew a button in the center of the gathered sections. {Note: I decided to use a brooch instead of a button.}

 

Hope you all enjoyed this pattern for a fashionable flapper hat!

  1. Love the 20s hats. I think Downton Abby will inspire a style revolution back to the flappers. Of course, you'd look lovely in any style decade.

      I've always loved 20's fashion, and I'm so happy so many people have recently started loving it too, since now I can create all these flapper/cloche hats for my blog!

    1. What a wonderful thing to do!
      I've added a "Print" button to my blog many times before, but it always disappears.
      Maybe just try copying my pattern into a word document and then print it.
      Hope this helps!

    1. Are you referring to the "Chain 3" at the start of Round 1? If so, the first chain acts as the magic loop. Then the other 2 chains count as the first HDC.
      Hope this helps!

  13. Olivia, I made this hat and it looks good but where the chain 12's are there is a big hole in the top when I pull them together to make the "bow" any suggestions? I had to select anonymous because I just started and don't have user names for the others. :)
