This was my first attempt at a fleece hat.  I am so proud of how it turned out.  I saw a similar one in the ski shop last year but no way would I pay the $50 they wanted for it!  I hand stitched the entire thing and you gotta love fleece...you can barely see any of my stitches!

The best part is that all of these were made from scraps!

I love it! This is the kind of hat my son and my husband love to wear. Care to share you patterns?

Thanks for posting:)

 Cheesy Not much of a pattern.  I measured his head for the band and then added an extra half inch to allow for the seam.  then I divided that by 6 and made 6 seperate triangles (with a little curve to them) I measured from the headband to the center of his head to get the length of the triangles.  For the ear flaps I just guess-timated, I knew they had to cover his ear but wanted them to be real long too.  For the cones I traced a large circle onto the fleece and cut it into quaters.  Sewed the edges, filled the cones with stuffing and the stitched them onto the hat.  Ta-da!

Sorry its not a great tutorial...I just kind of winged it.  Took me about four nights to finish.  The nice part about the fleece is I didn't have to worry about fraying edges.

amazing hat on the first one, when you say the spike parts, do you mean a whole circle and cut into 1/4s pieces and sew together for a cone? i was thinking of doing something like round or triangular pyramid spikes for other fleece projects.
