Collar Of Brim

Cut the wire inside of the headsize wire in the center. Twist these

wires once and a half around the headsize wire, bringing the ends up at

right angles to the headsize wire. Join the second headsize wire to the

top of these wires, using the same method as for joining the edge wire.

This collar may be made very low or as high as the wires will permit. A

separate crown of wire is not always used in a hat covered with very

sheer material or sheer braid. In such a case the collar would be made

as high as possible to make a support for the crown trimming.
