I love it when people request my stuff. A lady at work wanted one of these hats after she saw mine. I still need to put the buttons on the sides and the plastic canvas in the brim. Oh and it came out much bigger than my orginal ones. I call myself follwoing the instructions to the "t" and I did treble crochets instead of double and this is what I got. You know what is wierd I used a smaller hook ( ok so i did not follow the directions to the t) and it came out so much bigger. But she loves it and therefore I do too.
