I am not 100% sure how to word this question being new (very novice getting to grips with the terms) to Adobe Illustrator so going to give it a shot - it might be a duplicate - as I don't know exactly what I am searching for. Please be gentle.
I have traced an object (hard hat) and I have ended up with 2 paths.
This consists of the outer shell of the hat, and the inner top part of the hat.
The additional curve sticking out was to join some paths. This needs to go.
How can I join the two paths and remove that outer curve to tidy this up?
Zooming in closely to the outer curve, you can see the anchor points from the 2 paths are close.
Can you join these anchor points from two different paths manually?
What I have tried
I have tried countless options from
Path finder - but I just want to tidy the lines. My google efforts:
