Yes, there is a reason why it's called 'The Drunk Hobo' hat. My best friend at school is the biggest bum you'd ever meet. She's constantly bumming cigs off of people, she's a complete drunken mess, and is very self-centered. Complete pain in my you know what.
Anyways, after she stole my favorite hat that I knitted and lost it during a drunk escapade, she stole her other best friend's hat. That friend wanted her hat back, so I was asked to knit a hat. Of course, the bum says to be "I'll buy the yarn, not a problem!"
I went to buy my first spindle at a local yarn shop by my school, and she came along and requested the yarn in this hat. "Oh, look, Gen, it's Syracuse colors". "Yes, bum." I had to pay for the yarn, of course, but it wasn't too expensive, so I'm ok.
It's made out of 75% acrylic and 25% wool. This is great for her drunken antics.
Yes, that's me modeling it.

Look, it's a dangelly pom-pom. Perfect for any drunk!
