I saw this post from domestikatie and absolutely squee-ed my pants off: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308970.0. But I had no readily available child, so I decided to make a big people version for myself. I have kind of a flat head though (thanks Dad!) so it doesn't look quite right. Will probably be gifting it to my roommate. Next time I'll probably use a thicker or sturdier yarn- Caron Simply Soft doesn't work for everything I suppose. But at $2 a skein, how can you say no?! And such pretty colors.... Sorry for the glarey computer pics. Also, does anyone know how to knit brims? I kind of kludged this one out with a seed stitch.

I think it looks great on you. I use Vanna's choice baby for just about...everything, so I know what you mean. Cheesy So cheap!
   I knitted a similar type of hat to this once, and I sewed a peice of cardboard to the edge of the hat and kind of knitted around it, and then tucked the excess knitting under and sewed it up. It looks a hot mess on the inside, but my old roommate loved it. C: So I have no idea. But you did a great job! <3
