1920's Pompom Cloche Hat Crochet Pattern

Now before you say anything, no I did not cut my long hair, but instead used a faux bob hair tutorial to create this vintage do!

I've always wanted to try some Gatsby inspired hairdos, but just didn't have the time or patience. However, now I'm seriously considering chopping off my long hair, so I can channel my inner flapper, every day!

Have you ever tried any vintage hairstyles before?

Now make 2 pompoms using your yarn {Note: Be sure to use both yarn colours when making each pompom, not just one}.
I used a clover pompom maker, but if you don't have one you can easily make one using THIS video tutorial. Each pompom measured 2.5 inches.
Taking your tapestry/wool needle, attach both pompoms to the side of your hat.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.



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