Vintage Crochet Hats & Accessories ~ Book Review

by Kathryn Fulton
ISBN: 9780811714471 
Publisher: Stackpole Books
Publication Date: October 2014
RRP: $14.95 US

Available in both Book & eBook format direct from Stackpole Books.

I was so excited when I saw the title and cover photo of this book
that I ordered it in advance.
I was so excited when I received my email to say it was on it's way. 

The book is packed full of 23 classic hats, shawls & bags.

Vintage fashions are having a resurgence with more people
watching programs such as Downton Abbey.
We are seeing that the designs from the past are so beautiful.

This book takes different styles and designs from the past
and updates them so that you can easily make
the projects for yourself.

The patterns are in written format and are easy to read and follow.
There are patterns for all levels of crocheter so you are bound
to find something that you are able to make.

Charts are supplied with some of the patterns.
For example the Sunbursts & Wildflowers Shawl.
This is useful where you are repeating a design throughout a project.


The other brilliant thing about this book is not only are patterns
included for different ages you also have patterns for men.
In so many books these days the men seem to miss out
but not so with this book.

The projects in this book would make great gifts
for people at Christmas.

I haven't even shown you half of the patterns in the book.
There is loads more for you to make.

To check out more patterns why don't you check out the
Stackpole Books page where you can see a Google Preview.

I purchased the book myself.
