Recommended Fabric Types (Both Knits and Wovens):

This hat can be made from both woven and knit fabrics (see suggestions below), with a slightly smaller cap piece for knit fabrics, designed to stretch gently while wearing it.

  • Double gauze
  • Woven cotton
  • Cotton jersey
  • Bamboo jersey
  • Merino jersey
  • Swim fabric
  • Board short fabric
  • Waterproof fabrics such as softshell, for a rain hat

Fabric Requirements:

Per layer, based on directional fabric:

  • All sizes require a 1/2 yard of 45” wide fabric, when cut traditionally from a bolt
  • Sizes 0-6m to 7-XS adult require a 1/4 yard of 60” wide fabric, when cut traditionally from a bolt
  • Sizes S-XL adult require a 1/3 yard of 60” wide fabric, when cut traditionally from a bolt
  • All sizes can be done with a fat quarter** of 60” wide fabric (30” by 18”)
