1918 Crocheted Tam O'Shanter (1)

The Tam O'Shanter is a sensible Scottish hat (or "bonnet"), originally worn by men but made stylish by women, and named after the main character in a poem written by Robert Burns and published in 1791.

This image and crochet pattern from the Columbia Book of Yarns, 19th edition, published in 1918.
