I’ve been wanting to make this hat for a while. It’s super sunny all the time in Colorado, and given that I burn easily, a nice hat is a lovely thing. I had a bit of trouble where the brim meets the crown. I sewed all the way around, and realized that I had 6 inches extra of crown than I did brim. 6! I measured the whole thing perfectly. Did I miss something in the directions? Perhaps I have a faulty version of the pattern.
So after ripping out that seam, I added a 6″ chunk of brim from the pattern piece. It worked out perfectly, but it made obviously a much floppier hat. Did anyone else run into this problem? I’ll set Nathan on trying to help solve my problem, but for now, I will enjoy the retro coolness of my extra floppy sun hat.
