Notes

Commission from the Madison Motorcycle Club for 5 hats, to be awarded to the winning team of the 2018 Ice Rally.

Prototype (Hat #1) - SS1 on sample hat
34 sts/4 in = 8.5st/in
67 row/4 in = 16.75r/in
164 stitches wide.

Hat #2 Stitch size 1
9.5s/in
15.5r/in
164 stitches wide, stetch factor 1.9
Mattress stitched back seam, then serged curved edges at top.
Height from bottom edge to top of pie segment = 9.5”
This hat was too narrow, and the image was too stretched.

Hat #3 Stitch size 1
9.5s/in
15.5r/in
184 stitches wide, stretch factor 1.6
Mattress stitched back seam, then serged curved edges at top.
Height from bottom edge to top of pie segment = 9.5”
This hat was looser, but not loose enough. The stretch factor for the image was just right
