That is awesome I've been looking for one like this. Did you use a pattern? If so can you post a tut?
I did not use a pattern, I will try to have a tute up for you in a couple of days. I just started another one so I could make a pattern before I forgot completely what I did.
how did you do this?
is it really stiff?
thats bad ass
That hat is really not that stiff, enough to hold its shape, I am poor therefore I use "very top quality" bulk skeins of yarn.
