Automobile Bonnet (a vintage reproduction)

Patons Classic Merino Wool
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
3.75 mm (F)

This charming Automobile Bonnet Pattern was transcribed from a vintage pattern that dates back to the early 1900s. I have rewritten the pattern using yarn and hook sizes that are widely accessible today.

The hats pictured here were made using just one skein of Patons Classic Merino Wool and a US size F or 3.75mm crochet hook. This pattern is a one size fits most and wears comfortably on head sizes 21”-23”.

This Automobile Bonnet pattern also comes with a free crochet scarf pattern, Jenn’s Quick and Easy Open Weave Scarf, so you can create the same look. The original Bonnet was made with a wide scarf that was brought down as a veil to protect the woman’s face.

This pattern is copyrighted and for your personal use only. The hat may be made and given as a gift, but the pattern may not be reproduced for use by others.

I hope you enjoy making this vintage style Automobile Bonnet. I think this look is still very relevant and you can create so many new ones just by changing the scarf. It’s a wonderful way to showcase your own creativity.

There are more vintage reproduction patterns on the way. I am committed to updating and preserving these treasures. They are a precious part of our heritage so let’s take them with us into the future!
