so one of my best guy friend's birthdays is coming up, and we're both big WoW geeks. he is 110% horde, so when he asked me for a hat, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
the pattern is the basic Hot Head from S'n'B, in the large size. ('cause he has a huge head and lots of hair!) it only took me like an hour and a half to make the hat, but it took FOREVER to sew on the felt logo! I am NEVER doing an applique on ribbed knitting again, I swear. anyway, it came out so awesome I want to keep it for myself... and I'm alliance.
you probably can't read the tag. it says:
Binds when equipped
+10 Cold Resistance
+50 Pwning Alliance N00bs
+100 Complete Awesomeness
Requires Level 70
Equip: Proclaims to the world your faction pride.
and yeah, I know, you'll never find a BOE orange. but if I made it BOP I couldn't give it away
hat without the tag in the way.
me modeling the hat, so you can see how the insignia looks when it's stretched to the proper size. the diamond is a little off-center... which bugs me. but it's just a quirk.
I love this hat! I haven't taken it off since I finished it. I hope he likes it too
EDIT: he LOVED it. he literally freaked out over it and said he will wear it forever and ever and ever and only take the tag off of it when it rains, haha. he's such a dork. but it fit him perfectly and it looks great. I'll have to see if I can get an action shot. but his reaction really made my day.
just thought I'd share
