I have been told that there were several similar patterns already available. Yes, I am sure that a design as simple as this one has been made worldwide for many years, even without any patterns or instructions (I myself have been making this for over 10 years.) I am not claiming to be the only/first one to come up with the idea. Actually, this hat design of mine is based on a popular Japanese TAWASHI scrubby design and it’s been known for at least a few decades now. What I just did was to put it into a nice looking PDF so people who doesn’t already know can get to know it. Not trying to take credit for its history, not trying to steal anyone’s work! Thanks for your understanding. -Caro
