Crochet Pattern: Vintage Glenda Hat (5 Sizes)

By Amy Yarbrough – 6 Comments
Torchy Blane is a fictional character from the 30’s that inspired the Lois Lane character for Superman. Both are avid newspaperwomen who will stop at nothing to get a story. Glenda Farrell plays Torchy Blane in a few of the films of that time, and in it she wears a hat that has, for me, become the symbol of a woman of the press. With this pattern I have sought to replicate that style, complete with an upturned brim and hat band in the form of a long ribbon. All you need to know to crochet this hat are the basics. Enjoy, and let me know what you think in the comments below! crochet vintage glenda hat

      Hello Tina,
      I completely agree, some of the styles from that period were so neat! I’m glad that you like the pattern.

      All the best,
