The Seaside : This pattern contains directions for crocheting the hat pictured. This hat, vintage 1939 is worked in GIMP, a heavy weight rayon/cotton blend. Substitute heavy Crochet Cotton or light cord. The hat has a cute stand-up brim in the front, with open side panels on the back crown. It's an unusual hat design, as are the vintage hat fashions, that is sure to add interest to your wardrobe. The last row of stitch is worked around millinery wire to hold the form. The pattern is sized for a head at 22 inches.
- 3 tubes "Raphael Brand" Gimp, ( Research indicates DMC Cabelia No 10 as a substitute )
- 1 coil Milliner's Wire.
- No 4 or 6 Crochet Hook (depending upon firm or loose stitch)
STITCH: Use Single Crochet and Half Double Crochet throughout.
