What are you most proud of? This was a request from a dear friend of mine, for his 10 months old little boy. I didn't work from a pattern, I just googled raccoon pictures and tried to recreate the face

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'll be honest, I've never liked following patterns, because I always lose counts of stitches and rows... and my hats never looked like the pictures of what they were supposed to be. All I would say is: Don't be scared to improvise, it is fun :)

Why is it that they keep showing the raccoon but never explain how one can purchase the pattern. Why don't they take it down if no one is going to follow through?

I just had a request to make this hat. Along with everyone else, I can not locate a pattern. Are you offering a pattern for this har?

I did a raccon hat similar to this, just with no fluff. I love this one a lot better. Can you email me with this one too? jdiestel@comcast.net
