third measurement along the fold, plus the 
width it is intended to make frill and curtain, 
plus 24 in. sloped off at top and 21 in. sloped 
off at bottom, as Diag. XIVa. The frill and 
curtain should be gathered or pleated up to 
third and fourth measurements respectively. 
The fourth measurement gives the size the 
headline should measure across crown, to allow 
for head of child fitting in comfortably, while 
confining the head of the hood itself somewhat, 
so as to do away with unsightly width at back.

  Drafting Patterns.-The requisites for this 
method   of obtaining patterns are: Paper, 
pencils, tape measure and drawing pin, or large 
and small compasses, flat rule. 
  Taking, as before, the Flam for first example, 
a square is drawn on the paper the size of the 
greatest width of the hat (the measure of 
which, with that of head, tip, height of side- 
band, should be clearly written in a corner 
of the paper previously). The square must be 
divided by its diagonals and diameters, as first 
square in Diag. XIV. With compasses, or tape, 
pin, and pencil, draw a circle that will touch 
all four sides of square; take a second radius
