What advice would you give someone starting this project? I consider myself a beginner. Don't be intimidated by the look. It is all HDC (half double crochet).

I will try to put the instructions together for this hat. I'm not very good at writing instructions. Besides, I just started the project and tried it on at different stages(awkwardly at times) to see the fit. I did decide that a 3.5 - 4.0 inch brim would suffice. I also forgot to add that I used STIFFY FABRIC STIFFENER (You must dilute this or it will dry hard as a rock!) However, this is an excellent stiffener for multiple projects. I couldn't afford a hat mold, so I went to the 99c store and bought a simple plastic container (one that fitted my head) Lol, and a melamine plate (the indentation at the top of the crown. I''m new to posting stuff so please bear with me. I'm considering making a few for sale . . . who knows?
