Pineapple Bonnet Needlecraft April 1925


Many thanks to Jan Dunmyer and Carolyn Groves for bringing this pattern to the class. This is a pineapple baby bonnet from the April 1925 Needlecraft magazine. There were 4 tatted baby bonnets in that issue by Anna Hoskins. Let's use this pattern as a practical exercise in rewriting and modernizing antique tatting patterns.

Here are two pages of directions and two photos. The scans are very large and hard to read on screen, so please print them off to study them.

Directions pg 42, Steps 1, 2, 3 (partial), 9 - 19, 20 (partial).
Directions pg 42, Step 3 partial and Step 21.
