Okay, so I'm addicted to making hats!
After I made DH's last silly hat (See "cylinder hat" below), my 4-year-old son wanted a pointy hat with stripes and something hanging off the top, so this is what he got. I found a pattern for a very looooong pointy hat with a tassle, but I modified the pattern so it wasn't so long since that one was for an adult and it wouldn't have been very realistic for my DS to wear it.
The yarn is really crappy and scratchy and stiff, but the colors are really cute. We don't have a yarn shop here and I've never even touched real yarn other than what I can find at walmart, and this was the only self-striping yarn they had. Someday I dream of knitting with really nice yarn....lol
Introducing my DS, Jack, and his new pointy, stripey hat: hee!
Wasn't he being a good little model?
