  3. Beautiful hat! It’s worked from the bottom up … Correct?

    I am a little nervous about the seam though. (I am working on getting better at)I hope I can do it the right way. Do you have a pic of the seam so that I can compare it to my hat ?

    I just want to make sure it’s perfect. Thank you for the pattern.😊
