Cycling Cap Pattern

    Newer Older

    11/14/2006 - Flickr isn't displaying the full res version for some unknown reason. If you download original it will work. Let me know if if doesn't.

    Here is a basic pattern for the cycling cap I made. I have a big head so pull in the seams untill it fits you, then hem the length and stich the bill on. Cut on the thick lines, sitch the thin. If you download full size and print at 72ppi it should come out near the correct scale.

      Augh, just like everyone else has said, you are brilliant.

      I'm going to secretly sew one for my boyfriend for Christmas, but I have a question.

      What is your favorite fabric to work with when making hats?
      I only make stuffed animals, so any fabric that isn't some crazy-fuzzy-synthetic-thing is a mystery to me.

      Thanks again!

      I would say that wool is definitely the best. A tightly woven wool such as a suit wool. But I've also used various cotton fabrics with very similar results.

      Hey man this pattern is pretty sweet. I'm in the process of making one and it's turning out pretty good, but I how do you get the bill stiff enough to be able to flip up. I'm also confused on how you connected the bill to the hat itself.

      Thought I'd stop back in, My hats have evolved a bit. Your pattern got me started on a great haberdasher-hobbie.

      I've tried a pattern I guesstimated from an old campy hat, and altered at the top. This one looks like it will turn out better and neater, so I'm going to run and give it a try.

      I did have trouble getting it printed out to scale, so eventually I just expanded it to 130% of the original size, and printed the measurements all added up.
