This hat takes only 1 ball of yarn ,an excellent beginner project and so quick to make up you can have one match any outfit.This hat is a skull hat that works for ladies , too. This pattern was passed on to me from my Mom shared from her crafting group in Florida.Originally from Dovetail Designs do check out their web site.
My Grandson Brayden's birthday is coming up in April , we will be celebrating it on Easter Sunday, this hat seems like one he would like.I used a dark brown wool blend yarn. This hat self shapes into the dome . My Mother made it up in a lovely multi coloured striped yarn that is so pretty, perfect for any trendy lady.
