Re: Mystery Hat/Manuscript
- I also agree its most likly straw, though I beleave it is tied on, It seems to
have a lace/ribbon that comes up through the sides behind the ears and turns
to the frount going beneth the hat again across the brim of the farhead. Most
likely chaneled to the front, I noticed when I blew up the image that their is
what apears to be a bow in the front; making me beleave that it is agustable
from the top front of the hat not the bottom as we in the SCA do it. It make
me want to try to make a simular hat for war this year!
