So I've knitted many a hat and done some small scale charting (beer cozies mostly), but I decided to take it to the next level by making this hat for my boyfriend.

Here's the knitty pattern for it:

 http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTswell.html


I haven't gotten any pics of him wearing it yet, but trust me it fits him MUCH better than me! I had a hard time taking a pic because my hair is so poofy under the earflaps. I'll try to get a pic of it on him sometime.

EDIT: Now I have an action shot!






I didn't do the ear flap chart like the pattern said, not sure if you can tell here:




Here you can see the whole thing with tassels:




And here's what it looks like when you wear it the other way.





I used Cascade 220 as the pattern suggested, but I ended up getting superwash because the green was so much nicer. Also, I made one adjustment to the pattern: when you connect the earflaps to make the hat part it says to purl all the way around, but I thought that would make the earflaps look too sewn on so I knitted at those parts.



thanks for looking!


EDIT: forgot to mention that I actually photocopied and flip the chart BACKWARDS since I knit left handed and it made life easier. You can't tell from these pics those because they are Photoboth images and so they're like looking in a mirror.
