What a fab hat! I just love it! Make in tweed, cotton prints, denim, needlecord, its an Autumn/Winter wardrobe essential. Use some fleece interfacing or wadding/batting to add extra warmth on cold days, or add standard fusible interfacing for a Spring/Summer season version.
This Sewgirl pattern is available either as a PDF download or as a paper pattern (link above to my Etsy shop). Brompton hat can be made in sizes small, medium or large. To measure your head diameter, extend a tape measure around your forehead and above your ears.
