Setting Up the Pattern

Start Customizing

This pattern consists of: Unlike the Tudor Flat Cap, the previous project, this hat requires no set patterns for you to print. All you need is a compass, which can be easily made with a push pin, a length of string, and a pencil or marker. Here are two makeshift ways to measure your head for the hole in the brim. Now, you have to make a hole 1" smaller than these dimensions, since we are allowing a 1/2" seam allowance. That means it should fit exactly snug when you sew the crown into the brim, and take up that seam allowance. But that's described later. Just cut the hole smaller now.
