ok, so  the instant i saw this hat i KNEW i had to make one for my friend... i knew she would flip! so, i was broke as hell, but my mom gave me money for groceries.... dont worry i did get groceries... but i also got YARN!!!!  hahaha... im a bad child... but it had to be done...

and ways... heres the link to the original thread.... its the cutest hat in all the world.. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194445.0 i forget how to fancy link it.... oh well same dif...

on to my hat... it is knit with patons shetland chunky yarn.. and i had to go up a needle size for the hat part cause the required needles were currently in use on another project in another house...

i had issues with the pattern, so instead of waiting for help i just did.. k3 rounds then the purling round, then k3 rounds, then the purling round.. etc, etc....
but this isnt right. so my hats a little different... no big whoop... the recipients not even going to know... hahaha
  ok onto pics!



the main color is called earthy brown
and i used patons rumour for the pom pom.. which by the way is my first pom pom ever... weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

the recipient is a earthy granola type...   with long dreads that are going to look fab with this hat!       im also making her some legwarmers out of the patons rumour yarn... 

thanks for the great pattern.. it makes a fabulous hat!

oooooooh I love it in that brown! I saw on the original thread that loudxmouth was less than happy with the bernat yarn-how did the patons work out?? There is nothing I hate more than sheddy yarn!!  Smiley

patons shetland chunky isnt sheddy at all... its really light and soft... i would reccomend it for sure...

the patons rumour is sheddy though... but its really nice to knit with otherwise...

Love the skulls, and the purple hair. Mine was purple, but now it's green.

Oh, and the hat is really cool. Love the pom pom.
