Hello everyone ,
I'm obsessed with making hats now ..So I made another one this time for my sister(Anda) , we are infamous for getting lost every single time we take a road trip , so I made her an official road trip hat to wear an those occasions , I used some really great road sign flannel ...I also made a pictorial tute .. so I'm sorry for the excess of photos , I just find pics alot easier to understand than purely written directions...
So here we go ...
first here are the pattern pieces you need , the top /circle, the crown , the brim and the brim inserthttp://farm2.static.flickr.com/1348/641910713_344af34bdf.jpg?v=0
you must cut 2tops , 2 brims and 2 crowns ,
Now you sew the sides of the each crown giving you a inner and outer crown piece .. you then pin the top to the crown like so
stitch and now you have a cap!
make your inner and outer caps insert them into one another and stitch ( this is when a serger comes in very handy
Now sit the cap aside and begin work on your brim ..
stitch the sides of the brim the same way as the crown .. and make 2 ( inner and outer) this is also where you add your brim insert for stability
now stitch the brims together around the outer edge.. and flip right side out , then Iron and pin in place like this
now its time to do your rows of top stitching around 10 rows will be needed.. to give the quilted effect and add structure
then simply attach brim to cap and WA la there you have it a super quick and simple fishermans hat

thanks so much for looking and I hope the tute is easy enough to understand fell free to ask if you need anything explained better ( ill try my best )
Id really love to see any of you versions of this hat so please post if you make one !
Have a great day/night
