Ugh Update

These are the hat prototypes I've been working on for visor beanies. I am critical and just not satisfied with any of them. Surprisingly, the brim is OK. I'm picky about the crown decreases and the hems. The blue rolled brim hat has a sloppy crown decrease. The brown hat has a gathered crown which explains why people top hats with pom poms. The gray hat is an improvement. The crown decrease is neater, brim better, the hem is OK but has a tendency to flair out. The brown and gray models were made with an acrylic yarn which I do not like. The gray model is made with a wool/acrylic blend yarn which is better. Next versions will feature the best combination of features and better fiber content.
