How to make a palm hat, in two parts. (No audio, but hypnotizing video.)

I was hoping to see hats made from 90's-era PDAs, but this is cool, too.

The first time I tried to make that hat, I apparently measured my own head wrong, or I somehow shortened the band while I was weaving the fronds. A lot of work for something I couldn't wear, and I've never tried again.

I can totally hear that fellow's awesome accent.

(I suppose he could be from Milwaukee, but that isn't what I hear)

oh man that was AWESOME!!!!! I can just imagine the callouses on their hands... rough enough to withstand getting cut by the fronds, doing this day and day on.

I'd like to make hats.

I think I'd like it even more than to train this guy to train tourists to make their own hats.

Hey, do people in different countries do different knots? Or does everyone do square, granny, and bunny knots?

Mrs. agent and I, simultaneously, at about 8:45 in the second video: "wow, that's a sharp fucking knife!"
