A condensed version of why I made a tweed hat:
I read a book (which was kind of depressing fyi).
I loved the tweed hat on the cover.
I made a boy version for my own boy with soft fleece lining because we all know how long an itchy wool hat would last on a small boy of three.
I had to revise it many times because his head is huge. Like really big. So big that each time he has a physical they measure it and measure it again.
So in conclusion: I made a hat for a boy with a melon head.
