hi carina, thanks!

i think you mean did i knit it on the bias? i think that's what its called but i'm not sure... like knit from one side to the other?

either way nope, i did not! actually it's knit in the round, in seed stitch... i kinda just made it up cause in the end, i was looking and looking and looking for a hat for HHH but didn't find any that I actually liked... so this is what i invented.  i cast on 88 stitches, knit in seed for 7 inches, and then started decreasing... i added the earflaps on last but tried to make sure that it looked seamless so i pulled the stitches from the hat itself... did that make sense? if not, pm me if you need more details Smiley

 i guess since i made the hat up, i get to name it?  I call it the Simply Holley Hat (after HHH!)

Yes, that's it, it looked biased (?) to me, I've made a couple of hats with flaps, I love them. Some people say they look silly, but I don't think so! They rock!
Yours is very cool, and it looks great on HHH. Thank you for being so nice!

I'm happy PinkMafia likes her stuff! Yes, the pincushion is crocheted (and since I don't sew, I wouldn't have a reason to make one for myself Smiley
