1940s Free Crochet Hat Pattern
NOTE: For this ADORABLE hat i simply used my favorite color of Red Heart yarn (that i got from Walmart) in place of blue yarn and a size 'I' Boye aluminum crochet hook. This worked well for my head shape and gauge. If you dont have or cant find a bone hook then work with different hooks and yarn until you get the size you want.
Pattern taken from Free Vintage Crochet Patterns (a website that i love!)
