    Sort of. With felt hat blocking, the block is really the pattern. You just steam the wool and stretch it over the block and allow it to set until it’s dry after that. The block for the crown of this is a 1925 design. I love it! One of the best steals I ever got on Ebay! Mostly with millinery everything is just eyeballed. Thanks for you interest!

    Very nice hat, the colour and shape are great! Did you use any pattern?
