This unisex hat came to life as I wanted to make something unique for my dad. He’s one of the smartest people I know and very creative. This simple yet detailed design reminds me of how he takes simple and makes it beautiful whether it be in woodwork, metalwork or restoring a barn-find.
The pattern is written for you to customize to your desired hat. Mix’n’Match a beanie or slouch hat with a cuffed or straight brim.
