I can't stop making vintage inspired hats! Another 30s/40s style, I designed this one using short rows that flare out the front while the back brim is flipped up.



Knit using two strands of worsted weight held together (Patons Classic Wool).



After a good blocking it was finished with a grosgrain ribbon twisted around to conform to the hat shape and a vintage clear button.

Update: I've posted a felting/blocking tutorial for this hat on my blog here: http://www.pieknits.com/blog/

What an awesome vintage hat! I love the shape of it, and the trimmings really put it over the top of gorgeousness.
