I just finished this hat for my brother. He picked out the pattern, the colors, and the button. I almost always block my projects, but I left this one alone since it was meant to be kind of slouchy. Also, I was feeling lazy. The pattern is on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/goblin-hat-2
I mentioned the blocking because I probably could have blocked out this seam effect where the rounds join, but it's going to be hidden by the fold-over so whatever. Check out my jogless stripes, man.
At first, my brother was all, "I'm going to forage in the woods for a tree branch and make my own button!" After pointing out that he had exactly zero tools with which to accomplish this, I introduced him to Etsy. Gorgeous button purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheArtofReZen?ref=l2-shopheader-name
Button in action!
And just for fun, here's some knitting action.
I'm still waiting on my brother to come and pick it up. I'll upload an action shot when he tries it on.
I forgot to take a picture of him, so he sent me this one. Putting it to proper use, as you can see.
He loves it! Yay!
Thanks for looking!
