Hats From the Past -
Free Patterns for Styles
from the 1940's back to 1917

Take a little tour of a sampling of crocheted hat styles through the years, a glimpse into the history of ladies clothing. A larger photo of each is on that hat's pattern page. Complete directions are included for each style so that you can recreate any or all of them for yourself.


Here's a close-fitting hat made in shell stitches. Click here: [Go to Pattern]

This one is made in single crochet - you can leave off the contrasting color ridge along the top for a plain close-fitting hat, if you prefer. [Go to Pattern]


Swirl Tam - Another close-fitting hat with an interesting ridged pattern. You could leave off the chain that is shown hanging from top center, if you wanted. [Go to Pattern]

Calot Hat - Worked mainly in double crochet, with a band made in bead stitch. [Go to Pattern]

Pagoda Hat - Worked mainly in single crochet; band is in star stitch. [Go to Pattern]


Sport Hat - You could make it with or without the fuzzy look under the brim (original calls for Fuzzywool Yarn on that part of the brim for this effect.)[Go to Pattern]

Rosebud Cap - you could easily substitute single crochet rows for the loop stitch rows shown, if you prefer, or make as is. [Go to Pattern]
