I needed a project to work on for November so decided on a hat for my nephew. I used yarn I already had (in Thomas the Tank Engine colors) but decided to make it a silly shape, so went with a long, pointy elf hat.


(Yarn is Cascade superwash and pattern was adapted from this one. I see the point of the purl rows now; without them, you can see my decreases at the top and bottom of every stripe.)

I didn’t mean for this to be a Christmas present–just a fun winter hat–but timing means he’ll be getting it with the rest of his Christmas loot. I’ll try to get a picture of it on.
