Day 1

Th first important step was selecting the correct hat block size and transferring all our vital head measurements to the block.

On Jasmin's website she has a great video on blocking the hat blank with moisture and steam. Her 20 years of experience saved us all from making many possible beginner mistakes.

Once your hat blank is centered on your block the free forming fun begins...with lots and lots of pins.

Then steam again...

Then more pins...

Remove all the pins and try it on for shape...

Then pin and steam again and again until you are satisfied with final shape. 
Reaching this point took me 4 hours.
