Baby Hat Crochet Pattern That Looks Like A Football Helmet

Today’s fan freebie is a baby hat crochet pattern that looks like a football helmet. That’s right, it looks like a football helmet, but it is cute just the same.

I realized I don’t have the cover to the booklet this crochet pattern is in. Since most of the patterns include the use of Chadwick’s Red Heart Baby Wool, my research tells me it may be a 1940s Woolies for Babies book.

The Chadwick’s Red Heart Baby Wool used for this baby hat crochet pattern is discontinued. A substitute could be a fingering or sport weight yarn. I found Paton’s Beehive Baby Fingering yarn or Lion Brand Babysoft yarn, either should work okay.

No gauge is listed making it hard to get this vintage pattern right. While doing research for a yarn substitute, I came across an article on the Knitty website called The Joy of Vintage Patterns. It has some great information about using vintage patterns today.

I’m watching the Superbowl next weekend. Football is one of my husband’s favorite past times. I watched occasionally before I met him, but didn’t understand the game. He explained how it’s played, we have a favorite team and I’m hooked.

Go Falcons!!

Enjoy!

Nursery Filet Crochet Animal Pattern Baby Blanket Crib Quilt

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Well it’s another Friday the 13th and I choose to believe it’s good luck, not bad. I did a little research and found out black cats are actually thought to be good luck in some countries. If that’s true, and I think it is, I have plenty of good luck around the house.

Black Kitties on the Porch

This is two of them on the porch. One checking out what I’m doing and his brother lounging.

 

I had a grey momma cat give birth to four boy kittens in our barn almost a year ago. All are a combination of black and white. At first, they wouldn’t let us near, but now it’s a different story. They’re still outside cats, but when it gets cold or rainy, they are more than happy to be inside. All are fixed, that was fun, catching them and taking them to the vet, but it’s important. The county shelter is full enough already.

 

 

 

 

 

That brings me to today’s freebie pattern. A filet crochet baby blanket for the crib made up of animal blocks, one of them being a cat.

This pattern came from an American Thread Company booklet called Star Bedspreads Book No. 34 published in 1944.

The name of the bedspread is Land of Nod

“Whimsical…elfin…and so simple to make, a block of filet crochet and then a block of fabric. Little tots will adore it”.

 

 

There is a duck, lion, bird, elephant, squirrel, rooster, reindeer, pig, rabbit, dog and cat, and birds.

Because it is made with blocks, you could make it as big or small as you’d like. You could use all of the animal patterns or just a few.

Here’s the pattern as a PDF file:
