Hipster Bicycle Caps


My brother has a pretty rad collection of hats. On memorial day he was wearing a sweet handmade floppy-billed cycling cap that I absolutely fell in love with. I’m not a hat person so this is a big deal for me. Turns out, my brother was looking for some more hats just like this (because the lady who made them, stopped) and was wondering if maybe I could replicate it for him. Gladly I obliged, because this also meant that I’d have to make a couple for myself and I’d have a pattern to make as many hats as I wanted.

I gladly took the hat off his hands & started working on a pattern. I’ve since made 5 hats and have the pattern pieces for 7 more. I might be a tad obsessed. It helps that they’re easy to make.

Yesterday we had a picnic in the park with Jake, Polly & Ove & we all wore our new hipster caps. It’s a pity I only had my camera phone to document the occasion, but at least it was documented.

      I love a short-billed cap. Would you happen to be putting one up for a freebie?

      I would be interested in the pattern you used- will it be for sale?

      I agree….any chance you’ll share the pattern?

    7. […] Father’s Day I made him a black bicycle hat. I have a few childhood memories seeing my dad wear hats like that, so I thought he might like one. […]
