Getting's your Birka cap

I love the black stitching on this red wool four panel Birka cap.  It really stands out.  Although it might look like Ric-rac trim it's actually a period herringbone stitch on the seams.

The Birka cap is hand-sewn and the red wool is felted and holds it's shape so well.  I did line this cap with a black linen fabric also hand stitched.  

The coloring in the fur really complements the red wool and the black period herringbone stitching really well I think.  The class to for creating this simple style of hat is posted on the blog.
