Cartwheel Hat has a wide brim that is raised upward to resemble a saucer. The brim was so broad, and the crown was so shallow that by looking at the wearer’s face, the crown won’t be visible. Cartwheel Hat was won at an angle to showcase the brim.
At times, the crown would be so shallow and have such a wide circumference that it would barely leave any gap from the brim; however, that is not the only crown design.
Cartwheel Hat can be made using fur, felt straw, velvet, and many other materials. It is a formal hat, generally worn with dresses and pearls. The crown can be decorated with ribbons to make them discernible and add beauty to the hat.
