I LOVE this hat.  Unfortunately, the site where the directions were obtained for the Stars and Fireworks was shut down October 31, 2008.  Is there any other way to get these patterns?  They perfect the hat and I haven't been able to find anything even close anywhere on the web.  Does anyone have the instructions?  Thank you so much.
