Maybe not the most flattering hat but certainly one of the warmest.
made from fleece – that ikea throw seems never ending
loads of tutorials you can follow but it is a simple sew:
essentially draw your pattern as a rectangle with the long side measuring the circumference of the wearers head and the short side being half of the distance measured ear to ear ( plus brim and whatever length of fringe you want)
add seam allowances to long and short sides before cutting a double layer of fleece. I chose to have inner and outer the same fleece but contrast works well
cut the fringe to your chosen length along one long side then sew the other long side together
sew all the short sides together, stop just short of the fringe, to form a tube then turn inside out so the seams are hidden
do a decorative top stitch around the non fringed long side, bear in mind that this is on the brim so the bobbin side of your top stitch will be on display
turn the brim up and stand the hat on a table
gather the fringe in a bunch in your hand as though about to form it in a pony tail and tie a thin off cut of fleece around the bunch. Trim the off cut so it blends into the bunch
wear with panache!
