My third post was of an 8 strand braid with doubled strands used as a hat band. It made for a bold graphic look, and was well received. The only problem was, it was too bold and too casual for some occasions. I needed a more subdued and slightly dressier hat band. This is what came of that need. It is a 3 Lead X 26 Bight Turk’s Head knot. The ends are hidden under the knot as usual. Some of the folks who have seen this hat band are a little confused by this. They think it is a normal three part braid like they’ve seen their whole lives. It is amusing to watch them keep turning the hat round, and round, and round, looking for the ends they can never find.
I could use some advise. This hat band serves its function well, but it is too casual for some events. How can I make a knotted / plaited hat band that is dressy enough to wear at the high-toned events I go to on the odd occasion? It would have to be black or nearly match the color of the hat. But what knot or braid would be sedate and dressy enough? Let me know your ideas via comments. It would be greatly appreciated.
