I made a wonderful cloche the other day, and I’m really proud of how it came out. However, the hat brim/edge keeps curling up, so that it resembles a Turk’s Cap more than a cloche. I have tried wet blocking it, and once it dried, it re curled. A cloche needs a nice low brim, like a bucket hat, and I’m not getting it. Can I use a spray starch? It’s plain worsted weight wool, Bernat Satin. Please don’t explain how to prevent this - I do know but I was HOPING that the heavy brim would have prevented this rolling. I need help for a completed project. I would hate to have to toss this hat. Any help, even suggestions/ideas are appreciated.
