Once again, I know it's getting a wee bit warm out for winter hats, but I knit this for my boyfriend and finished this a while back and am just getting around to posting it now  Roll Eyes.  I used duplicate stitch to embroider the name of our band, The Teds on the front  Grin.  I used the same pattern from Jimmy Beans Wool that I did for my Candyland Knitted Hat.  It's a really easy knit and I was able to finish it in one afternoon.  The yarn used was Caron Simply Soft in Black and Lion Brand Microspun in Black.  The duplicate stitching was done with cheapy Red Heart in some kind of off white color.  

Here are some links to pictures:

An artsy shot.

Yay!  Let me know what you think!  Wink

Haha, thanks!  He's actually making a "normal" face in this picture.  I don't think we have a picture together where he isn't making some kind of weird face! Smiley  As for the duplicate stitch: it took me a few tries to get the hang of it, but once I got it, it wasn't bad at all.  I just followed the instructions in my trusty Stitch 'n' Bitch book!
