I had brought him home a 'fedora' type winter tweed from Ireland, when I visited there some years ago, and he almost wore it out.
Have you ever seen such a pattern?
btw: I loved reading your blog, and it made my 62-year old bones feel happy to see that there are still and young gentlemen on the planet, that they didn't die out with my parents' generation.
Thank you kindly.
I'm sure such a hat is possible. All such hats are made of felt and then assembled. I would think that one could make the parts, felt them, and then sew/glue them together much the same as all such hats are made.
I have no idea where to find such a pattern though.
As for the hats I make, I do pretty much "make it up as you go" hats of all sorts of designs, but all are basically just variations of the basic pull on Winter knit hat and aren't anything special at all.
