Bobbles, Bangles and Beads







So, bangle hats must have been The Thing in '62 for there to have been three different ads for them in a single issue of McCall's Needlework and Crafts. What I want to know is how they kept them perched on their carefully starched coifs.

OMG - I think I remember my mom making one of these...altho I cannot recall anyone actually wearing it! It was white with those white round bangle thingies...can you say atrocious?

My Grandma had two of these hats--one in purple and one in royal blue. My sister and I loved them and Grandma finally gave them to us. I have no idea what happened to them, but there were pretty neat.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

My best friend in 5th grade (MaryLee Williams) had one of these bangle hats. It was 1962. Her Grandma knit it for her. Oh how I wanted one of those hats!!
