This started as an experiment with an oldy-but-goody stitch pattern. A feather and fan scarf? That's easy! But what about a matching hat? How would you work the crown shaping, you ask? Carefully. I went through several bouts of knitting and frogging before arriving at a solution. And it even creates a cute flower/star pattern on top.
