Work the body of the hat & the crown first, adding on the brim last. This makes it very easy to adjust the fit. Alpaca tends to stretch & doesn’t have any elasticity so needs to be a fairly snug fit at the brim. Ideally you should aim for at least 2 - 5 cm/1” - 2” of negative ease at the brim.
Includes instructions to alter height of hat.
