This unique and funky hat is richly textured, comes to a point on top and features a front edge or brim that can be folded back or worn forward for two separate looks.
The name of the hat is an homage to Seinfeld’s “urban sombrero” and being a native New Yorker living in Philadelphia, I’m a true city gal at heart.
The back of the hat will need to be sewn up with a tapestry needle in the final step. The bottom of the hat is shaped at the neck to ensure a perfect fit.
You will need approximately 215 yards of worsted weight yarn to make this hat. One entire skein of Berroco Vintage in the color Mushroom was used to make the hat in the photos.
