Inspired by all the fantastic hats of the 1930s-1940s, this tilt hat uses short row shaping and blocking to get its distinct vintage lines.

Yarn is held doubled through out and any felt-able worsted weight yarn will work.

It is highly recommended purchasing an inexpensive Styrofoam “wig form” head at a beauty supply store to block and pin the felted hat on it. Otherwise a bowl can also substitute for the hat block.
