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.

Here's a close-up of the cables.

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

That is perhaps the best story I've heard in a long time.  I completely cracked up because, as was mentioned, everyone seems to know "that" person.  But great hat!  And I hope it doesn't get lost... or maybe that's what the ties under the earflaps are for!  Can't lose something that's tied to your head!
