9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hippie Boyfriend Hat on: January 04, 2008 07:11:32 PM
My boyfriend wanted me to make him "a hat with ear flaps"  so I whipped up this creation:



He's very outdoorsy and I wanted to make him something that really matched his personality and so I found a tree chart and chose four colors and went from there. 

There was no pattern other than the tree chart and I just kind of placed colors as I went.


Tree pattern!

He wanted it to be super warm so I put a lining around the inside.  It reads "Tyler's Winter Cap" 


He also requested a secret pocket so that's shown in the picture above on the ear flap.

He loves, loves, loves it.  So I am happy.  Comments = love

***EDIT***

Some people wanted to know a little more about how I made this hat soo.. here it is!

I basically went to the craft store and chose four colors that I thought would look nice together and then went home and drew up a little picture to think about colors and such.  I had the tree chart from the book Knit Hats! and i knew i wanted to include that.

I started by making the ear flaps.  I knitted two ear flaps and then cast on a LARGE amount of stitches (BF has a large melon) and as i cast on i placed the ear flaps where i thought they should go and knitted them into place as i cast on.

From there i pretty much just chose colors that i thought would look nice and worked in the colors as long as I thought i should.. just kind of felt my way through it...

I knitted the inside of the hat as a strip and used some kind of ghetto intarsia methods to write "Tyler's winter hat."

I crocheted the intarsia strip on by crocheting around the outisde of the hat using a slip stitch.

To make the "secret" pocket I knitted two more identical ear flaps and then crocheted them to the hat when i lined the outside using slip stitch.  Then I crocheted the little pocket flap on and added a button.

THE HARDEST PART by far was crocheting the top of the intarsia strip to the hat without it showing on the outside that I had done so.  it took me forever.

the dangly parts i just braided together and attatched.  yay!

Here's some pictures that I didn't originally include: 


A close up of the button that's on it.  You can't really tell how cute it is and i wanted everyone to see it.


this is the top

that's it!  <3
