What are you most proud of? Although this hat is made to be functional , rather than stylish, I like the way it looks. I also like that you can pull the brim out...like a cloche...to protect your glasses when it rains (my fellow glasses-wearers will appreciate this feature!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a very simple project that knits up fast on bulky yarn. Though you can't really tell, the body is a twisted knit stitch, which gives it a little more texture.
