April 1983 The Daisy Hat
This week's hat is one I really looked forward to making because the photos in Workbasket Magazine were pretty awesome. The good news is that the hat is done. The bad news is that I can't find the Workbasket Magazine with the pattern so I can't show you the rest of the Daisy patterns.
This hat used worsted weight yarn and it came along with a set of patterns based around this daisy pattern.
The patterns included; the hat, an afghan, a sweater and leg warmers.
The hat is made as a regular hat and then the daisy pieces are sewn on. It's hard to tell but they have you put a little stuffing under the center piece. There's a shell stitch border on the hat too.
It's...a little big. It's very loose on my head and feels like a mushroom out of Mario Bros. The applique is thick and I'm not sure what the purpose of stuffing the daisy center on the hat is.
I left the ends unfinished so I could take it out and turn it into a bag or something a little more useful than a giant mushroom hat.
I can't really rate this one since I don't have the instructions anymore but based on fit I guess I'd give it a 3 out of 5.
Next week I'll have the May patterns! If I find that missing magazine I'll share those photos too.

I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
