Here is my dad wearing all of the hats I made for him for Xmas. I had to draft my own pattern and it took a lot of time and a lot of failures to get anything resembling a golfing/driving/ Irish tweed cap. They are still not exactly like a store-bought one, so maybe I can perfect my pattern in the future.
Failure 1- not exactly a hat.
Failure 2: Tiny train conductor hat
Failure 3: A slightly too floppy and large driving cap!
A nice "final version" in plaid flannel.
The second "final version" in a thin wool. I think the color was called dill.
So, they are really easy to make when you have a pattern already made... but making the pattern was really hard. At least now I know hats are not that difficult to make!
I just got a huge box of patterns from Lisette, I'll post pictures of those this weekend!
