Okay....
So my boyfriend likes to ask the impossible....

and is possibley the first man in the world to ask someone to make him a calorimetry. He's got beautiful but big curly hair and doesn't always like it kept under a hat, it gives him a headache because the hats are always too tight.

But he wants a calorimetry to keep his ears warm. He wants it in black with white text on it reading "The Mop" (his nickname... because of his hair. haha)

So yeah... is this going to be possible to do in intarsia?

Or can someone recommend another method to put this text on that might be easier?

Thanks guys
