My friend, who maddeningly cut off his mohican not long after I slaved over working out, and knitting him a hat 'with the holes in the right places for his spikes to go through' wants a batman mask/hat, whatever you'd call it.

I think it would be much easier to make top-down, but have never done a hat that way.

Do you think if I started with say, 6 stitches and did k1,mk1 to increase in the beginning, etc, it would work??

also, how do I go about the eye holes?? would 2 yo's make a big enough/tidy enough hole?? (I'm sad to say, my mate is slowly going blind, and only has sight in one eye, so just need to look good, don't need to be too practical).  Undecided  Sad

Here's a top-down hat pattern to base it off if you'd like..

That could at least give you an idea. And as for eye holes? You might need to work them like buttonholes and cast off a certain amount of stitches to fit the eye, then cast them back on in the next row. It'll prob take some experimenting though.
Anyway, good luck! I've always wanted to make a batman mask, just haven't gotten around to it Cheesy
