I’m doing a CG Cookie snowmen course and I’m stuck on this part https://cgcookie.com/lesson/materials-for-the-scarf-and-hat at 19:31 where he put a wave texture on top of the hat and I’m having troubles. The wave texture is acting weird on top of my hat please help.

My blend file https://pasteall.org/blend/8f88c59ef9314f1487a5ff53f46f2454

My hat topology enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Can you add an image of what's going on so we don't have to download the blend file? $\endgroup$ – ZargulTheWizard Jan 6 at 0:15

    $\begingroup$ Since that's a paid course there isn't much point in posting a link to it here! $\endgroup$ – John Eason Jan 6 at 0:24

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots I updated my post with two more screen shots one with the course's hat topology and one with my hat topology but I don't understand my topology is like his so shouldn't I get the same result? $\endgroup$ – Project J-DogS1994 Jan 6 at 14:13
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots no he's using the Generated output I updated my post with a screen shot of him using that input take a look five screen shots down. $\endgroup$ – Project J-DogS1994 Jan 7 at 0:18

If the Scale value of the Wave Texture node is low the problem won't be noticeable, maybe this is what's happening in his video:

Another way to fix the problem is to use concentric circles for your topology (right hat):
