What I’m Crocheting: Flapper Hat with Irish Rose

The crochet book that I reviewed here on the blog yesterday was a book of crochet flowers. One of the flowers from that book, the Irish Rose, was the pattern that I used for the flower on the 1920’s flapper style hat shown above. I went to a 1920’s themed party for New Year’s Eve and wanted to make myself something that would go along with that. I made a dressed up version of a cloche hat. Then I added the Irish Rose flower. I topped it off with some red and black duck feathers. Overall I was happy with how it came out!

  1. I like that vintage look. I found a vintage pattern for hat I would like to make. I think it is from the 40’s Wide brim,folded back on itself is the best way I can describe it..I don’t have the pattern in front of me now, but it was a free vintage pattern…very cool. I like Irish Crochet Flowers…so pretty. You did a nice job on the hat, bet you were just stunning….

    • Thanks. I also really love Irish Crochet Flowers. I only learned how to do them recently but now I’m seeing tons of patterns that incorporate them in beautiful ways. The ’40’s hat sounds like a good vintage find too.
