I made another one today, using a different border, and making it shorter. Hopefully it will fit more like a beanie. I also changed up the first chart, too.
Here is my first Machu Picchu Earflap-less Hat
with the pattern link, etc. posted earlier today.
Here is version #2, knitted today. Neither hat is blocked, and may not get blocked. His noggin will block them for me!
See, what did I tell ya!? His noggin blocked the hat!
