This is a miniature version of a Lynn McMasters hat pattern. She makes the most amazingly detailed instructions for the patterns which include drawings and photos. I took her pattern for a Wellington hat and reduced it, made it of black buckram covered in lace and attached an adjustable plastic see-through strap to it so it stays on your head and its not terribly noticeable. Very saucy. The only drawback of the hat making experimentation was the amount of blood I lost through my fingertips. If I had one of those cool CSI flashlights that makes blood glow, the inside of this hat would lite up like christmas.
