You know those tube thingies that slip over your head and sit around your neck and it it gets really cold you can pull them up to cover your mouth and nose? where (on the net preferably) can I find a pattern for one that would be appropriate for a man to wear?

sorry about the lousy photo... if it doesn't work click here : https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?mcats=500&si=loftyhat&what=title&name=&when=&whenterm=

This is a hat I made using bright and lofty yarn (It was a rainbow colored variegated) that I, too, got as a gift (lofty conspiracy? Tongue). I followed this pattern: http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel181746&catid=cat356
but I used size 10 1/2 needles

It makes a chunky, fluffy, soft hat...I love it and have had several people request that I make them one.

Hi! [I'm the one who is making and selling skirts out of ties.]  Are you "gutting" (i.e., taking out the wool insert and spreading them out) the ties or are you sewing them together "as is"?  I gut my ties, then finish the ends by hemming the facing that is already there.  If you gut the ties, remember that the ties are cut on the bias, so be careful not to stretch them when you are sewing them together, or they will "swirl", and not in a good way!  I sew the ties together with a french seam (I'm sure you can get a better description of that from this web site than I can provide.)  When my skirts are done, they are machine washable and dryable, and with a french seam they won't fray.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me, and good luck!

I have gutted the ties and when I am finished I want them to have their original tie shape and size.
