knitted top hat

I knitted Henry a top hat for his birthday. He loves it!

Pattern: Hatopia (buy it at http://www.darktwist.com/ or Ravelry)
Yarn: Lion Wool, three skeins
Needles: Harmony circular size 9

Here’s what it looked like pre-blocking:

I knit the hat sides to 11 inches before blocking, instead of the 8 called for in the pattern. Tip: cast off very very very loosely! The hatband is a thrift store belt.

    I am DESPERATE to find this pattern. I am searching Ravelry but haven’t had luck finding it. Dark Twist showed a different picture to the title of Top Hat…made me unsure about purchasing when I can’t be sure it is the right pattern.
