>A Crocheted Dutch Cap- 1924

>Off and on the past few months I’ve been trying to pick up crochet.  I started with little swatches, moved to an entirely overly-ambitious sweater which I will be lucky to finish, and have now been going through my vintage magazines and booklets looking for simple little projects I think I could tackle.  I’m not sure, but I might be able to make this up πŸ˜‰  It reminds me of Irene Castle!

This little cap has a darling caption for the photograph- “A fairy web of a cap to keep the hair in order when motoring to the country club dance.”  Too bad some little munchkin thought their pencil would make the lady better looking!

This pattern comes from The Modern Priscilla, July 1924.
Enjoy! If you end up making it up please share pictures πŸ™‚
