I sold quite a lot of things to friends and colleagues without taking pictures of them, I could kick myself. I’ll make sure to take pictures of everything in the future, regardless of whether its going in the etsy shop or not, starting with this hat. It was custom made for a (male) colleague, I hope he likes it!
The pattern is loosely based on Cosette Cornelius-Bates AKA Cosymakes Lake Reflects Trees hat. I don’t have the book, so I had to make it up as I went along. The crown could probably do with being slightly less flat, and the earflaps could be bigger, but overall I’m pleased.
