Grandson's Mario hat
Ever since the blue tutu for my granddaughter,my grandson (4yrs old) has felt a little left out. He asked if Grandma would please make him a red Mario hat....Here is my effort so far....finishing work tomorrow...

Oh, it looks like you knitted the patch? I thought you were using a not so stretchy one. That looks great.

I have "Denver Bronco" patches to put on hats for my nephews in Colorado.....This was a last minute idea for my grandson. I am still not sure how I will attach it but I think sewn on with white yarn is going to work. The challenging part for me now will be the flap and cutting the plastic to fit.....Not sure I will get the time today because I have a lot of prep work for dinner tomorrow with friends!

This is going to be so adorable. You're grandson will love it I'm sure. I just love the idea that he would ask you to knit a Mario cap.
