I mean, I did say we were going to do something rather charming!

This is, of course, optional, you do not have to do it! It’s the sort of thing I’m going to start including as extras for patreon folks (I haven’t made the patreon public just yet, but stay tuned for details about it over the next few months).

But I thought doing a beautiful little braid with all the ends from my embroidery would be way more fun that weaving in all the ends the traditional way.

Plus really, this satisfies my need for order in a way that should surprise absolutely no one who has been around me for more than five minutes. I am a very tidy, very neat, very orderly little chipmunk in my heart, and this is more satisfying than it has any right to be.

Plus in what world is a hat not better if it has a secret braid!
