Step 1: Moosehide Hat with Polar Fleece Lining
Measure and cut out two side pieces which are the larger pieces of the hat and measure and cut out one piece for the front section. You will need to cut out the same three pieces for the lining. The stretchy part of any material will run sideways on the hat for both the hide and the fabric not up and down. This is to make sure the hat keeps it's original shape and can stretch with wear as needed. You can check the hide by stretching it all ways before marking so that you know which way it stretches easiest. This is the way that you will place your pattern for marking and cutting. The same with the fabric - whatever way it stretches place the pattern along this part.
