Stråhatt i görningen

Jag började förstås på en ny hatt också. En stråhatt till mig själv, en sån måste man ju ha till sommaren. Det var lite knivigt att få till rillan.Men efter lite frihandsformande fick jag till en form jag kände mig nöjd med.
Brättet gjorde jag med samma stock jag använt till min grå hatt. Det gick klart lättare än jag trodde att forma ett brätte i strå.

Pappa jobbade också med en stråhatt, vi kände att det var nödvändigt att ta ett blajfoto.

Hi Kristoffer,

Nice to see you are making many wonderful hats!
I have been thinking about something when watching your pictures. I personally try to avoid as much as possible cutting the brim away from the crown, and on this hat in particular you had a brim block with a hole which would have allowed you to do the hat in one piece... any particular reason why you didn't do it?
Just curious... Perhaps it's just that I'm too lazy... :-)

The hole in the brim block i way too small, so it would be difficult to make it in one piece. Straw hats are more troublesome to make in two pieces, but generally I don't shy away from cutting the brim away from the crown. By cutting thebrim from the crown you can make adjustments more easily. Maybe I shold make a blog entry about cutting the hat, I'll make it in english for you to read.
