not quite finished with this hat but something about it bothers me badly. I'm not sure what it is. Is it just because I'm used to this style of hat being dark in color? Or something different.. I figured people could tell me what I can't put my finger on.
I think what is needed for this is addition of a strong blue braid to take eye away from the dominance of the green & yellow. The style is great but sometimes when we do the same style often we think what can I do to improve on it. Use the braid to tidy up some of rough edges. Bit worried your bias is not true bias and that is why bind is not sitting smoothly
What if you moved the bow down to the next level?
