I do a felted one, need to make some more soon so ifthat appeals let me know size and colour required and I'll add you to my list. A cloth one is also an option if preferred

Here's one of the felt ones, exact shape of pointy bit can be altered to suit your tastes or to match a source image

I agree Sally does a great job. Just to add my tuppence worth: there were many other types of headgear in general use during the 12th century although modern groups portraying that era seem to latch on to the Phrygian style almost at the exclusion of anything else, which is a shame in some ways.

There were various brimmed hats (probably straw) and woollen caps that could be called "nut-shaped", very much like the Norman helmet without its nasal; these were at least as popular as the Phrygian shape. Many men wore a hood of some kind when travelling or working outdoors and linen coifs were commonly worn without other headgear. Going bareheaded was equally common.

Thnaks for middle one

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
