Updated on October 3, 2013

Vintage Patterns for Thread Crochet Baby Bonnets

Special occasions call for special baby hats. Vintage thread crochet baby bonnets are the perfect choice for christenings and other important days. Here is a collection of rare original thread crochet patterns for these old fashioned baby bonnets. If you crochet, this is the most appreciated baby gift you can present. It will be used, treasured and kept as a family heirloom.

These original thread crochet bonnet patterns are becoming increasingly rare. Here are three different collections for the discriminating vintage crocheter. Each pattern has been preserved, cleaned, and then reprinted so the crocheter can work from a "new" copy.

Patterns are available from eBay as printed copies mailed promptly upon payment.

      This is the second lens of yours that I have come across that has a retro or vintage "feel". Now that's a touch of class...well done.

      Crocheted items seem so rare these days as few people seem to actually know how to crochet. I have made sure that my daughter has learned to crochet and knit as I think it is important to keep traditions alive. She loves it, and is now better than me!
