Last year for Christmas one of the things that I "gave" to my Dad was a picture of a hat that I drew, with the intention of knitting one for him when I got the chance.
Last month my Dad brought to my attention that I still hadn't made it yet and he was wondering if that it would be this years gift...
*cough* I felt pretty bad about that, so I got some yarn and started knitting.
My Dad has a rather large noggin, so I made the pattern, knowing that if I where to use a pre-done pattern it wouldn't fit.
When My eldest brother saw the hat, he mentioned how much he liked it and so I thought I would knit one for him for his birthday.
The hat has become affectionately called the jelly hat by my Dad, and hipster hat by my brother.
I like the pattern 'cuz I can whip a hat out in just one day, yay for fast projects!
