Man, hair really helps keep you warm... but hats do too! This hat took about 20 minutes to make, including taking the pictures (thanks Matt). It's warm and silly, two awesome qualities of a hat.

Tools & materials:
  • 3 pieces of warm stretchy fabric in contrasting colors. You only need a couple square feet of each; the pieces shown could have made 3 or 4 hats like this
  • tape measure (or string, in a pinch)
  • scissors
  • sewing machine & thread

Step 1: Measure & cut

Measure your head. Divide the result by 3 and add a bit for seam allowance. This is the width of each hat section to cut.

Lay out your fabric pieces in a pile. The parts are symmetric so it doesn't matter which side of the fabric is up (and your fabric may not have a right & wrong side anyway).

Cut a pointy shape with divots, as pictured (it's not hard to understand, just hard to describe). You'll almost certainly make the hat too long, for some reason it's hard to underestimate the height of the crown. This is fine, we'll cut off any excess later.

Cool hat =]<br/><br/>Why'd you cut your hair?<br/>
Ah, I see your other ible...it was an accident?
All the cool kids were shaving their heads. I accidentally followed the herd, tongue lolling and brain off. In reality I know very well that head shaving should be done in the Spring!
cut hair in spring??? good recipe for sunburned ears!!! done it, and lived to regret it
cut hair in fall and wear hats
Who are the cool kids?
just look for anyone bald!
UMM>... interesting...... Definitely original to say the least lol.
Don't you traditionally add little tinker bells at the end of the points on this kind of hat and go mock the King and Queen?
