I loved this pattern so much that I made one for me too. Just increase the amount of granny squares to fit your head and follow the same directions for the rest, adjusting for the size and amount of foundation stitches on the crown and brim. I also used cotton and it worked out fine. Thanks for a great, easy to understand pattern! Floppy hats for everyone!!!!!!!!
