Fosshape Skullcap or Base Forms
Creating a Fosshape skullcap or hat base/form
You can use any cap pattern you may already have, or simply create one. The pattern should be slightly larger than needed, as the Fosshape will shrink.

Skullcap fit over wooden head block and pinned in place for steaming. It is always best to cover the head block or form with plastic and tape
Apply steam directly to the surface of the cap, but keep the steamer moving so as to not leave marks. Hit the seams first and work your way down the skullcap.
