Patterned from real vintage 1940s hats, I designed this hat for a make-your-own Swing Time Tilt Hat in perfect Victory Era style. Only taking a few hours to make, you can whip it up to match an outfit or costume. Chic WWII authentic style, it is crocheted in the round with an added edge in the back to fit the head and use as a base for a hat pin for the perfect tilt; also a curlicue embellishment. Enjoy the benefits of a modern-written pattern with the period correct look of a real vintage pattern!
Uses 2 strands of cotton/acrylic DK weight yarn. Moldable and crushable, but holds its shape if blocked.
Written in standard American terms. Skill level: easy-intermediate.
This simple, detailed pattern by an established crochet designer is available for instant download after purchase. Lots of photos included!

Completely adorable! This hat is going to be fun to make.

Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.
I can reserve things for you upon request, but the reserve will automatically end in 7 days UNLESS you request a longer reservation. Several times someone has asked me to reserve something for them, then doesn't buy it and it is reserved for months without a purchase, so from now on the reserve will only last for 1 week unless you specifically request a longer reserve. I WILL notify you of this policy via convo, and send a reminder if the 7 days are up without a purchase.
I do not accept coupons (other than thank you coupons for returning customers) for custom orders.
Returns & exchanges
Returns are only accepted if the error is mine--(a wrong shoe size or something)--within 2 weeks of the purchase, so PLEASE check your measurements as an ill-fitting size cannot be returned. Return shipping cost will not be refunded.
Hopefully this answers your questions--if not, drop me a convo! I'd love to work with you.
