Free Vintage Crochet Hat Pattern: 1940s Springtime Blossoms




Ok then, we'll try this again.  Something happened and now i have to start over (oh well!).
 

Good mornin', good mornin'!  I hope you enjoyed that peppy little song the other day.  But now its time to move on with one of my favorite crochet patterns in my favorite department, hats!
I found this the other day on the web and realized just how much i need a good spring hat.  I saw it and just fell in love with it.  The bag pattern will be coming tomorrow, so stay tuned. 
I found it onAntique Crochet Patterns (.com).  They do have some different stuff on there than Freevintagecrochet.com like a suit pattern!  I just might have to try that some time!
Anyway, here it is, enjoy:

I think I could more crochet a hat over knitting one. Since I have neither circular or double pointed needles. But cool, I'll check out that Free vintage crochet. Hey do you know if crochet knits are the same as hand knits? As in how you care for them? I'm pretty sure it's the same, but I have read more books on knitting than crochet and I'm just curious.
