I've seen tons of crocheted versions of these and thought that it was about time to see a knit one! I love the color of this yarn like you wouldn't believe, it's such a deep shade of blue that it looks black in some light. I used really big needles and finished the whole hat in 2 1/2 hours, and this was doing garter stitch in the round! I made my own pattern. As soon as it was done blocking I wanted to wear it, but sadly I don't think I'll get a chance to until October.
