"I decided that I needed a versatile hat so, I set myself to design one. It's fashionable and yet practical. This is an intermediate pattern that takes roughly 3 hours to complete. This hat can be made in various colors and sizes. Change the color to hunter orange, tan, or camouflage and viola' you have a practical fishing hat for your hubby! This is great for keeping the sun out of the eyes. These make great gifts!"
