Hope you were able to find the info you were looking for re PaulaGron's pillbox hat pattern. I happened to be interested in this same pattern, and was searching the net, hopefully to find additional pics of it on Gron's site. It was this search that led me to this site and your interest in the same project.
I had checked out Cool Crocheted Hats from the library for another project I just completed....Jonathan James' Tiers Beret...for my daughter. My wife spotted Paula Gron's hat on the cover, and really liked it. So this will be my next hat project.
CCH has a lot of interesting projects...some quite unique. The James beret was a real learning experience for me, since I had not worked with this type of yarn before. A bit frustrating at first, but the project turned out ok. JJames had several pics available on his site, which was very helpful with seeing what the final project was supposed to look like.
Hope you enjoy your 'pillbox' project.
