While I dislike most head coverings, I do like hats. After a rather lengthy image search, I found a hat and developed a pattern that I like. The results have worked out well. My hat is oatmeal colored wool with rabbit fur. Dan’s hat is black wool with rabbit fur. The third hat was faux wool with rabbit fur. Pearl cotton was used to embroider the hats. Each represents about 20 hours of work if not more. The main structure of the hat is machine sewn, and the rest is done by hand.
