This is a jester hat I knit for my nephew Danny this spring. It's great to be able to make funny and goofy hats that little ones will wear. Once they get older, forget about it! I forget the exact name of the yarn, but it is something light "Light and Lofty", perhaps by Red Heart. I looked for the yarn label, but I can't find it.
I'm making one now called "Sprite" that I got off the magknits free pattern website. I'll post a picture of that when I get it done. I'm using a pretty gray/blue colorway with Encore worsted weight yarn done in moss stitch on size 5 and 7 dpns. It's very easy.

I'm a chick with sticks and I'm not afraid to use them!
