I'd love to think that 65 years from now there's a photo of me on the successor to the internet and people asking, "What on earth is she wearing?"
Godden in East Sussex, mainly Hastings area.
Richards in Lea, Gloucestershire, then London.
Williamson in Leith, Vickers in Nottingham.
Webb in Bildeston and Colchester.
Wesbroom in Kirby le Soken.
Ellington in Harwich.
Park, Palmer, Segar and Peartree in Kersey.

Marvelous, JAP!! I believe that the Astrakhan-stile Chimney-Pot hat is the one. I'm glad you shared your trip down memory lane with us. Thanks for that.

And Sutton', as long as you don't get caught wearing any Astrakhans I think you'll be safe!!

Ryan.

Boucle yarn Woolen Beret. It's loose construction does not result in a look like a beret but i think the pattern followed was for a beret.


"The yarn is made from a length of loops of similar size which can range from tiny circlets to large curls. ... Bouclé is also the name of the fabric made from this type of yarn, especially fabric that maintains the looped appearance."

Also see link of vintage hats with different design to your picture but one is described as a Boucle yarn beret.
