What are you most proud of? I designed the pattern stitch myself after many hours of experimenting with different ideas. I wanted the texture to start right at the crown without the instructions getting too complicated. I am very proud of the end result and how easily this hat can be made in different sizes. I am also proud of the fact that the joins in this pattern is virtually invisible :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not a beginner project! You really need to know how to (a) work in the round (b) make basic AND advanced stitches such as working around posts (c) follow standard pattern instructions.

I love this hate. I bought the pattern and the top turned out great, but the brim didn't look any good, I have to turn it under, it just hangs in front of my eyes.....what am I doing wrong? How can I get it to stand up? Any help anyone can give me greatly appreciated... Thanks :-)
