As for the hat, I prefer the knit but I don't really think it matters. I just find them easier to work with than the crochet ones.
Thanks! I live in Japan but I would love to go to HL. I miss it so much. I might wait to make mine until Oct. because I will be going back to the states to visit and I will be able to get flowers that I want.
