That *#%@^ hat

I posted a question about the hat on p. 75 in Louisa Harding’s Hats Gloves Scarves. Thanks to you wonderful posters, the problem was solved. After my first attempt, I royally screwed it up so I tried again. My second attempt is [I]much[/I] better, but now I’m at the end and no matter how many times I sew it up, it looks messed up. Presewn it looks like decent hat pieces. Sewn up it looks [I]nothing [/I]like the picture. What am I doing wrong this time?? I thought knitting was supposed to be relaxing, not rage-inducing.

Hello! Can you post a picture or give some more details about what you aren’t liking about how it looks?
