Felt Hat Flat Brim
This hat pattern includes instructions for knitting and felting a flat brim hat and an extra wide flat brim hat. The wide brim measures approximately 3.5 inches after felting and the regular brim measures approximately 2.75 inches after felting. This pattern also includes information on felting hats, recommendations for yarns to use, and measurements for making a twisted cord to decorate your hat. You can make some amazingly beautiful hats with combining different color yarns and combining a solid yarn with a colorway.
U. S. Size 11 24-inch circular needles and dpns
1 stitch marker
Extra wide brim hat -- approximately 600 yards worsted
For regular brim hat – approximately 440 yards worsted
For each twisted cord you need 20 yards of yarn.
Purchase yarn that is felt-able. Do not use super wash or washable wool. For this specific pattern, I recommend 100% wool and not a wool combination.
