Block of the Month March 2015 – FB8

Every month we offer a discount on one of our popular designs and this month it is the saucer block FB8.
When I designed these blocks (FB7, FB8 & FB10) I purposefully kept them full width all round to allow the user to cut and shape the finished hat to whatever design they fancied. Of course they can be blocked fully but as the second picture below shows, there are other possibilities too. Aoife Harrison of Aoife Harrison Design has done some fantastic work with this block and these are just two of her many varied creations.
It is a very simple block to use; the sinamay is laid over the block and either pinned or tied (if you have a string groove) and the presser is pressed into the middle to create the dome. After that the real fun starts…..
