Spool Cotton Company, one of the major thread and pattern publishing companies, at this time, published their book 200 -
Hats, Bags and Accessories
" Heady Stuff: Hats to turn heads, and warm hearts ... Hats to bring a glow to your cheek, a sparkle in his eye ... Hats to make your personal history memorable. There's nothing like a pretty hat to make a pretty girl prettier, to give her a head star on chic, to captivate the man in her life. Here are 21 out and out flatterers designed to make the most of you at a fraction of expense. Lofty ideas that deal softly with your purse, keep your feet on the ground ... but let your head soar in the clouds. "
PC1317 - Mother Daughter Scotch Caps - Contrast the ribbon to compliment your outfits.
PC1340 Black Hat and Bag - The buttons certainly add intrigue to this bag. The hat is a simple calot.
PC1323 Liberty Hat - This is an adorable highlight, with or without the flower.
PC1336 - Square Brimmed Bonnet - This is certainly the 'glow to the cheeks' reference.
So, what do you think? Did Spool Cotton nail the essence with the description ... hats to make a girl prettier and captivate the man in her life? I am particularly fond of the square brimmed hat and the roll back pompadour. These two would mesh well with my style.
So many of the modern crochet hat patterns are similar, squashy and touting ears. I think it would be marvelous to see a return to variety.
I hope you enjoy the book preview. I've listed most of the patterns in my shop; links are below the pictures.
