Description

Based on a style of hat seen on sixteenth century scholars, and related to the Canterbury Cap still in use by the Anglican Church, our Scholar's Cap is a comfortable, square brimmed cap with a flap that covers the ears and back of the neck.

Several variations are possible, make it with a distinct cross on the top or without, make the ear flaps longer or shorter, add a central stalk or not. Whilst not formally part of my 'Historic Hats' range, this pattern does result in a convincing approximation of the style seen in period illustrations and may be a consideration for use with 16thC costuming.

Worked in the round, top down, and fulled to size.
