When I was a kid my favourite Dr. Seuss story was The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins and maybe that's why I persist in buying and making hats even though I seldom seem to find the right one for me. Here are a few attempts.
The top hat is crocheted in shells...
the middle hat is knit flat in a k2p2 rib.
The bottom one is that crocheted hatbasket, before I felted it, oops.
