My Man's Hat

Image of My Man's Hat Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

My husband needed a new hat for this upcoming winter and so I decided now is as good a time as any to make a new one for him and he likes simple but bulky hats and this is what I came up with. First you make the cuff, then make the crown then stitch the 2 pieces together.
