Pattern Description:

This fascinator is faithfully reproduced from Weldon's Practical Crochet (Fourteenth Series), How to Crochet Useful Articles for Home and Personal Adornment published in the late 1800s. The pattern has been updated to today's crochet terminology and includes charts. I think you will find this pattern as delightful as I do.

The fascinator as described in the pattern can be worked with thicker wool or continued to a larger size. This pattern would make a lovely shoulder shawl with ties. Such a wonderfully adaptable pattern. Originally intended as a head scarf...... how will you wear it?

The pattern introduces a "tuft" stitch.

This is a very simple pattern and is easily customized to fit the yarn you choose and the size you want. The basic shape is a square with ornamental ties.

The pattern includes written instructions and charts.
