I’m going on a long trip to sunny places this fall, I’d love to bring my awesome straw hat, but its just a bit complicated keeping it nice when backpacking.
So I’ve been looking for a fabric sun hat to bring along that I can just stuf in my backpack.
The ‘sun and rain hat’ from Lorenna looked like a good one. And I was inspired by ‘asf’ to make one that was reversible.
The result is really nice! allthough it’s a bit big… The pattern said it would fit a 22 inch head, and since my huge head is 23,5 inched I added a few millimeter to each piece. But it turned out to be quite a big hat. Because it’s reversible I cant just stick some elastic on it.
I have to think about how to fix that…
