Hat Trick (Hat Etiquette in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

## Puzzle

US Version

Taking Felix's request for "that" hat at face value, you must now find another hat to hand over from the pattern shown below. The hat you're looking for will be the same shape and size as the one shown above the pattern, but it might not be facing the same direction.

UK Version

Since Felix has requested that you hand over a hat, can you find another hat buried in the pattern below? The hat you're looking for will be the same shape and size as the black one shown below, but may not be facing the same direction as the example hat.

US Version

The shape is identical to the example hat, so while you may find that some shapes resemble the hat in question, outlining one of these won't count as a valid solution.

Study the points where the lines of several shapes cross each other to find the exact match to the example hat.
