I'm still looking for that pattern! LOL :)

O.K. That was what it was called in the old days [c. WW II] before the Navy went all modern and started using baseball caps.
I almost made a woman's hat based on the "Dixie Cup Hat" while recuperating from a childhood illness. I ran out of thread before I finished; and I WANT THAT HAT NOW! It still frustrates me that I never finished that hat. Silly of me, I know, but that's how I feel

I would like that pattern too. I am making my grandson's Army and Navy outfits to play in for Christmas.

Didn't find it on that site; but thanks for trying, Ms. Clickers! :lol:
I found a pincushion pattern like it, though. Much too small to adapt for my head, boo-hoo :cry:

I found a pattern for a paper one that I thin k I can convert ot a cloth one- and that will work for me, but I am still hoping to find a knitted or crocheted one for the one year old.

Where's the fun in buying something you can make for yourself?

If you can't sew or crochet or knit that is why I posted that.

Try googling for sailor hat patterns--you're talking about the rounded top with the fold up brim, yes?

Thank you for going to the trouble to send me that link. It's the closest one yet, but not quite. the crown of the hat I seek was flatter. I suppose I COULD alter the pattern to do that; but I keep hoping I'll find the original pattern.
I'm a former Patternmaker, women's clothes.
I sew, crochet and knit.
Still seeking. Sniffle, sniffle. :cry:
