So I've never made any type of hat before. I've made headbands, but never a hat.
Well, anyway, I got my first cable needle last week(because I was too cheap to buy one earlier) and decided that now would be a good time to make a hat. And like I do with all of my other projects, I just jumped right in and made it up as I went along! GO ME!
This is the finished product:

I like how the pointy bit came out, and the fit.

This one shows the detail of the pattern.

And this shows off the brim that my brother hates.

Note: Me+Camera=Bad Pics of myself looking sick, high, drunk or all of the above. Forgive the funkiness.

It turned out way better than expected and I can't wait to show it off to all of my friends at school tomorrow!

Very cute. I like it! Don't be offended, but it reminds me of those Kewpie Dolls I see in thrift stores sometimes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's an example: http://www.amydale.com/images/kewpie_doll02.jpg. I think it's the way the hat is shaped that reminds me of the doll.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Don't worry, I'm not offended, it kinda does look like that.
My friends said it looks like a flower, and my brother said I look like a monk.

Thank you!
I used a discontinued Lion Brand yarn(YAY for free yarn!) but any worsted weight yarn will work.
And yes, it is my own pattern, I might be able to put up a pattern for it if there's some interest.
