These are also Christmas gifts that have been done for a while. Good ol' Cascade 220 for these and the fur was some Berroco something or other. The attached pics show one completed and one in progress.
Nice crisp blocking on that! Do you have an actual hat form or did you improvise?

No hat form. Put it on the bottom of a sauce pan from my kitchen!
Aaron that apple in the picture looks delicious!
Looks terrific! Sort of a psuedo Jackie Kennedy look.

Neat hat! It reminds me of a Mongolian hat that's worn on the Steppes. Without the ear flaps, of course. Really wonderful work.
