Draw the pattern on the back of both fabrics. Add 1 cm (5/8 inch) seam allowance. Cut the pattern twice out of both fabrics. Please notice that both parts should be mirrored. Pin the two pieces for the outside of the hat down, right sides facing, and sew together. Sew the notches on top and on both sides closed. Repeat these steps for the lining of the hat.

Pin the outside of the hat to the inside of the hat, right sides facing. Sew with a twin needle inside and outside of the hat together. The twin needle will sew two parallel lines of stitches on the top of your fabric, and a single zig-zag stitch underneath, that will make the stitch stretchy. Leave a 5 cm (2 inch) opening for turning right-side out. Turn right-side out. Topstitch (Also use a twin needle to topstitch).

With a small stitch on top of the hat, handstitch both outside and lining together.
