So excited to give this to him. He loves Firefly, and every year for Christmas I make him a hat, so...
(I'm modeling the hat, in housecoat and on the phone with my mum, but I will post a pic of him in it come gift-swapping!)
Oh, so proud!
I couldn't find a pattern on the net that I was particularily fond of, so I made my own (Aaron also has a really big head for such a skinny little guy). I used Paton's Classic wool in Old Gold, Paprika, and Bright Red (which I should would be too bright, but I'm acutally really happy with it!)
(For those of you not familiar with the hat, this is what it's modelled after: http://www.bookish.dk/images/jaynehat1.jpg)
Next time I will make the ochre section bigger, the paprika smaller, and the pompom have more red in it.
it only took me a few hours - maybe 6? One day, anyways, so I may do up another of the same style in different colours for my little brother for Christmas!
