Rushed work is apparent... gah. Since I used so much fabric getting a nice border for my tunic, I forgot I needed more for the hat, and hence this is the result.
I've seen a few patterns online, but each one has a seam running along the top, rather than sides. Of course, gravity defying hat, and unnatural shape will make anyone struggle finding the right pattern. Though I had to add two seams on each side, it looks great in pictures. I use stuffing to fill it out, and it hangs in a "not natural" way, which works great. There's a little lift to the back, but when I wear my shield & sword, you don't notice.
Also... cucco was the result of boredom at work, and my cherished cardboard.
