appi slopes helix hat

Sister Suzy's hat to match her Helix Mitts.
I had her look at several hat patterns and this is the one she liked the best. It is Appi Slopes by Melissa Mall.  I found it on Ravelry

If I knit it again I will make the crown shallower by about two inches. (Start the decreases for the top sooner.)

Making the bill was interesting. The direction say to cut the bill from plastic and wrap in duct tape.  So I cut the bill from an old plastic binder and wrapped it in red duct tape.
I used red for the bill and duct tape because I was worried that the bill would show through the knitting. 

Everyone have a good day!
