Felted Bowler Three Styles
This hat pattern includes instructions for knitting and felting three different styles of bowler hats. The first pattern is a standard bowler with a round regular style brim which measures 1.5 inches and sits away from the hat .75 inches. The second pattern is a wider and higher brim bowler. The brim is approx. 2 inches and sits away from the hat 1.5 inches. It lends itself well to embellishments such as ribbons, brooches, and flowers. The third pattern is a semi-bowler which has a flat brim and a slightly turned up edge. Edge turn up is .5 inches and sits away from the hat 2.25 inches. It is a wonderful style for big bands of fabrics and bows. Information on felting and recommendations for yarns are included.
Please read through this pattern to become familiar with the pattern, types of yarn, and the felting process. The Notes and Felting Sections have information that is important to successfully knitting and felting hats.
