So my mum is a total hippy and saw my sham hat (which is i think knitted out of old recycled fabric, its very puffy and a very loose weve, i wish i could post a photo for you guys but i dont have access to a camera) and she freaked, fell totally in love with my hat because "between the pointed hood and the the long tassles that act like a built in scarf, its so cute!!!", and has been asking me if i could find her a pattern (so she can knit her own :) ) for a couple months now. and i figured if anyone would know, it would be you guys. so how bout it hoopers? do you know where i could find patterns for them online? and could you knit them or are they a crochet?
