I recently finished one of the hats from Vintage Vogue V7464. Hat B to be precise. That pattern is pretty infamous for having poor instructions and I must say that I agree. It took me some time to figure the pattern out, though now when it is done, it really wasn’t that hard to make. I used green wool felt that is a bit on the thin side, but I starched the pattern pieces quite a lot after I cut them out and the hat holds up quite well. I’m not going to wear it when it rains, though.

In the hope that someone else may have an easier time with this pattern, I have made an illustrated guide on how I put it together. It’s in two parts and can be read here and here.
