What are you most proud of? I love the ruching. This hat is part of a collection called "Liberation." The tying element to the theme are the influential women who inspired the hats and the ruched elements. For more information about the collection, please see http://craftydiversions.com/patterns/liberation.htm What advice would you give someone starting this project? The hat is worked flat. The ruching is achieved with finishing. No worries-- the instructions tell you how!
