update: I have now added a better wing style. I still have to post photos, but the wings are WAY better than the first. Pay attention to the wing options when choosing which you want to do. :) The photo of just the crow shows option 2 for the wings (my preferred way).

The yarn estimate is a guesstimate, I did not use a full skein. I did a little tweaking on the wings. I wasn’t 100% happy with them (as shown in the photo with the face paint), but they work good enough for me to love the hat like crazy…And apparently my hubby loved it too, as he found it laying on the bed (he wasn’t home when we had the major rejoicing over the finished product) and I caught him wearing it later in the day.
