New pattern -- The Police Cap -- GIVEAWAY TODAY!

Last week, I had someone custom request a police cap pattern.  I used google images to find a ton of them, and realized that the most common features for all of the different forces that I saw were the flat top, 8 points around the edges, the brim, and the band around the bottom.  Oh, and a shield on the front.  So that's what I created.

Surprisingly, it took a lot of experimenting to get this pattern where I liked it!  That was mostly because the shaping on the points drove me crazy, but I think we're finally there.  


To enter to win the pattern, share what you're working on now (crochet or otherwise!).  :)
