Free Pattern - Vintage 1945 Toreador Hat #1033 - Crochet

I know that ads can seem annoying when you view my blog. However, when you click on & off an ad, it generates funds which can be used to protect & save animals in need.

The profits from the sales of my Etsy vintage patterns are also used in support of rescue animals.

Here is your free pattern...happy crafting!


Please share my blog with friends & family to assist in this effort,
& remember to visit my Etsy shop, Miss Julia's Patterns.
