Okay,  so I made the Half-Pipe Hat for myself to see if my boyfriend liked it all done up before I made one for him.  I used kinda cheapy acrylic/wool blend yarn so it would be washable and incorporated one of the charts from the Skull Isle Hat.  Instead of using plastic canvas for the brim I used the thin plastic from the side of a kitty litter container.  The result:  he loves it and I do too!  I started his yesterday.



*The white opaque plastic from the kitty litter box doesn't really show through under regular light conditions but it did with the camera flash*

I really like the color combo/pattern. It looks really nice, you did a good job. I'd ask you to post the pattern if I knew how to read them, but I'm still a beginner.

That's fabulous! Did you make up the pattern on your own?

Thanks everybody!  Grin  I just followed the basic pattern from "Son of Stitch' n Bitch' with a few tweaks.

That hat is awesome.

I cannot wait for that book to arrive. Amazon and I need to have a serious chat about the meaning of the words "expedient shipping."

Thanks for all the compliments! The hat was really easy and quick.  I started the hat on a Friday night and by 6PM the next day it was done!   The only thing I might reccomend before making it is to measure your man's head first.  Only because I cast on the 80 suggested stitches for mine and it fits my head perfectly but it was too tight on my boyfriend.  I cast on 120 stitches for his hat.
