Pattern: Medieval Hood by eqos Pattern: Medieval Hood by eqos
My patterns are free to use for private, noncommercial purposes. DO NOT distribute my patterns as your own. DO NOT sell my patterns. If you repost this pattern elsewhere, give me credit by linking back to this page. Show appreciation for my work if you like it enough to repost it!

Based a pattern on medieval findings, though I can't tell you which because I lost all my bookmarks and I can't be buggered to do all that research again right now.

The gores go in the slashes that are drawn (well there is only one drawn, but of course there's one on the other side). You should also make a slash at the back center and put a gore there, and put the last gore in the front center (where the gores are on the pattern). The brim gets folded completely over to meet the front opening.

If you use this pattern on DA, I'd like to see what you made. :)

I am SUPER confused by this pattern. Is this supposed to be cut on the fold? Also, are the liripipe pieces cut from the same fabric? Because the main hood is 20'', but the liripipe piece that looks the same length on the pattern is 25''.

I have made at least 3 hoods from this pattern. Thank you.

I'd like to use your pattern but I'm new to using patterns. Usually I just make everything up (and have mediocre results). I'm not sure how to use a gore... :/

More detailed directions would be much appreciated!

Here are instructions I drew for a different hood pattern. As far as the gores are concerned, the construction is the same. And here's a pretty good tutorial on how to insert a gore [link]

Hope that helps!
