I regret that I cannot bring you a photo of the cartoon-head itself (will try to bring one back from Xmas), but my dog will stand in:

I "designed" this myself using one of the top-down calculators you can find online: http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/topdown.cfm (not much of a feat of design, on my part)

My nephew is 4, and though my sister says he's stocky for his age, nonetheless his head circumference is only 1/4" less than his chest/tummy circ.!  So I put in that button band to get it over his head. 

Unfortunately, it only just fits him now - not good enough for the year ahead - so I'm planning to add some length when I go home next week.

The yarn was Hemp for Knitting #102 Allhemp6, and though it's stiff to knit with, it's wonderfully soft and durable once you put it through the washer & dryer.

Thanks!  And Pisco says thanks. 

Just realized you can't see in this photo the cute shiny star buttons (a star set in a circle).

So cute!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.
