Hats, hats and more hats

Spread the love

I like hats. They are one of my favorite things. I love to wear them, make them, look at pictures of them, try them on in stores, honestly they are just amazing to me.
Most of the time I don’t follow a pattern. Once I have learned the basic pattern I just like to experiment. Which can mean that I end up with hats that are too large, to small, or just awkward shaped.

Today I am going to share a hat that was incredibly fun for me to make and I spent the time to make sure it fits.Right now there is only an adult size pattern.
