I’ll be finishing off my aunt’s mittens while watching The Constant Gardener tonight, so I’m starting to plan the hat I’ll be knitting next. I’ve bought a pretty blue wool for it (70% merino, 30% possum!), and I’m going to try some new fancy stitches. I want to make a wide brim for it, which means I’ll need to buy some millinery wire so it’ll have some support. I have NO IDEA how to do this. (To support the hat, I mean, not buy the wire.)
I’ve found a thread at craftster with a few hints on how to do it, but nothing specific. The thread also concerns crocheted hats, which is a completely different process and likely doesn’t translate well to knitted hats.
I’m feeling pretty clueless.
