What are you most proud of? The overall shape, and versatility in the finished blocked form. It's a very fun hat to wear too!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I always recomend getting an inexpensive Styrafoam head "wig stand" (available at beauty supply stores) for blocking hats on. The key to a beautiful finish is in the blocking and shaping. Taking a look at my tutorial for this helps too! ;) http://www.pieknits.com/blog/2011/10/tutorial-blocking-a-feltedfulled-hat.html

Love your design and blocking tutorial! I make knit felt hats too and use a modified mixing bowl for my block - oh for a real millinery block!
