I imagine you might be realizing that a baseball cap just isn’t my thing by now. I love the way a tricorn looks.
For those of you who aren’t sure what a tricorn is it’s a round crown hat with its brim folded up on three sides to make a triangle shape when looking at it from the plan view. Tri-corn, three horns. get it?
I have made several cocktail tricorns. These are fun and look great when one point sits jauntily over one eye.
I’m not sure a hat like this could have been made without at least one with a skull.
I decided to go for a more traditional french look with this and the next one.
I love the way these look and when I have a bit of time to play I will definitely make a few more. I think I’ll make one in embroidered silk next time.
