How to Make a One-Pattern-Piece Reversible Sunhatcomments (29) June 27th, 2014
3. Add the brim. Decide how long you want the brim of your hat; something like 2 to 3 inches is a good starting point. Continue the straight line down for as long as you want the brim. Then measure out to the right, from the bottom point, to add some flare to the brim. I'd suggest about 3/4 inch. Angle the ruler from this point up to your original circumference point, and draw the brim line again along this angle.
Square a line out from the bottom point of the brim line, toward the fold.
Square a line out from the fold to meet the bottom edge of the brim, and blend the point into a smooth curve as shown.
