floppy visor

by Nichole Csete
(Wisconsin)

I have used the goodknitkisses tutorial on looming a hat with a visor. I am using Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn. My problem is the visor won't stay up and just lies on my forehead. Can I stiffen that bills of the hats I have already made? How can I avoid this in the future?

Floppy visor brim+how to stiffen NEW
by: Jen Tavernier

Hmmm - seems to me I have seen various tips on these - (probably on the loom groups on Facebook.)

However, Kristen has one, Isela Phelps has one, And Mickey Sellick, the guy who started to original loom vids on youtube, way back when...

I haven't made this hat, but did find this page from him on stiffening the visor. He runs "The Crochet Crowd", (face bok and own site)

But here is the visor page I found, where he is using (and has a template for a plastic stiffener, that you knit over and under.

Hope this helps! (Plus, if you go to Facebook, there are tons of helpful and interactive loom groups - very helpful, and a lot of us belong to all of them! LOL
