Friday knitting pattern

The bonnets in these pattern books are a little scary looking.

Believe it, or not, this style of bonnet was popular for girls up to the early 1970s, and I remember them in glorious white acrylic with long strings with poms poms on the end. I would have loved one of them at the time but alas … yet another of the things clothes wise I never got as a child.

These are definitely something that doesn’t seem to be part of the vintage cross over going on at the moment, and I’m not so sure I’d really want to see them again.

you never know with the vintage crossover happening, they may become in vogue in the near future...I hope not, they are pretty funny.
