Crochet Easy and Romantic 1950’s Hair Scarf |Vintage Crochet Series
Hello my dear Crochet friends, today I am bringing to you a new project. It’s for the Crochet Easy and Romantic 1950’s Hair Scarf, part of my Vintage Crochet Series. This pattern is very easy and cute to make.
Here in the UK the lockdown has been extended another three weeks (since last week), so I am staying busy with my crochet projects.
I am so grateful for my never ending yarn stash, however I have still bought some more yarn online.
So many ideas for my crochet project have popped into my head these days, I feel like my heart is overflowing, in a good way.
This week I am bringing to you a romantic and bohemian design (my favourite kind of projects it seems), it’s so easy and so feminine, I absolutely adore it!
This project is inspired by the hair scarfs from the 1950’s, and is part of my Vintage Crochet Series.

I really enjoyed making this fresh, sweet and feminine crochet accessory, reminiscent of dainty and delicate women. It is fresh and youthful, as well as very easy to accessories with any outfit that you may already have in your closet. I just used a simple elastic to tie my hair back in a high ponytail, before adding the crochet scarf as a finishing touch. And I love the effect!
I have seen so many of these hair scarfs/neckerchief in stores, and thought it would be so lovely to make a crochet one. This is a very easy pattern and it is made with a 100% DK yarn (in this case, Sirdar Cotton DK). It can be made with any similar yarn (in America this is a size light 3 yarn).
I really love this hair scarf, when I am wearing it I feel very feminine and like I have just stepped into the 1950s. The pink colour adds to the delicacy of this crochet accessory, and makes it a great addition for any wardrobe as it goes with everything.
The Pattern inspiration
I have a passion for cotton at the moment, and I am really enjoying the Boho romantic vibes these cotton designs give off. Crochet is so versatile, and so different according to whether it is Summer or Winter. At the moment I am definitely exploring the Summer vibes and cotton crochet projects, and I am really enjoying it!
Even though the weather here in the UK has been terrible, wearing summery accessories really uplifts my mood and help me feel as if we do have a Summer here too! I know it’s not going to last, and that we will have our sunny days too, and I cannot wait for these to arrive.
