Thank you everyone!  Grin
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Birthday Obama Hat on: October 16, 2008 01:42:43 PM
I call this the Birthday Obama Hat because my birthday is January 20th the day that Barack Obama will be inaugurated as 44th President of the United States.  Wink

This is my first time using multiple colors and first attempt at duplicate stitch, so it's far from perfect, but I like it anyway.







I followed this pattern with a few minor modifications:

http://tobinknit.blogspot.com/2008/02/hope-hat-pattern.html

Row A: Knit
Row 1-5: Follow pattern- K2, P2 ribbing
Row B: Knit one row, continuing to use R
Row 6-8: Follow pattern- Join W, knit 3 rounds
Row 29-30: With W knit 2 rounds.
Row 30-36: With DB knit 6 rounds.

Then, instead of Hope as written in the pattern, I added the Obama logo from the Obama Afgan Chart using duplicate stitch:
