I have been hatting, blocking the hats from felt blanks. From left to right a pilgrim's hat, a traveler's or pilgrim's hat, a brimless cap of a style often worn by clerics and scholars, and a "Robin Hood" hat. The hat on the left started a a capeline blank, the others as hood type blanks. The wool felt is floppier than I'd like for a broad brimmed hat, even when liberally treated with Kahl Hat Stiffener. I will try fur felt next.
