This is the thirty-ninth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Michelle. In order to solve this puzzle, you must layer the tiles to create a hat pattern.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each tile has a size of 3 x 3, and you can place tiles anywhere, but they have to run all the way around the edge.

    Start by placing the eight white tiles so they run around the edges.

Hint Two
    Place the black tile along the brim of the hat so that you end up with a 3 x 5 rectangle. Now we have the problem of how to make the sides of the brim look right.

    Although Hint 1 told you to place all the white tiles first, try bringing two of them to the front and see what you can do.

Hint Three
    Do you now have a black, upside-down T shape? Look at the model to see how to proceed from here.

    There's a fully visible 3 x 3 black tile positioned at the top of the hat. That has to be the last tile you place.

Super Hint
    If the last tile to place is a black one, then the tile for the red of the hatband must come before it. Position it exactly in the center and then place the last black tile. You know where it goes.
