There's not much to the materials list. You'll need 1 sweater for each basic project, and any embellishments you want to add on.

Create the pattern using the dimensions shown on the grid. (The pattern turned out to be too big for the brim. Cut it down to 13 inches wide, then you can fit it from there. I included a metric conversion chart from my grid.)

really great tutorial , love it and now i am off to make these hats for my kids they all want them with really long tails , go figure but i also have a use for those ugly sweaters i hate and have jsut taking up space in my closet ,

Very nice use of worn out or no longer used clothing articles.

Thanks :)
I suppose it would be pretty easy to adapt to a "regular" hat, that is one that was not so seasonal....just for shielding against the cold, eh?
