The pattern for this hat is ready! I finally got a hat with a moose on it. However, it was a lot of duplicate stitching and the hat no longer has any "give" to it making it good for one year, but not two. However, the original hat will fit probably until he is three. I tried it on the daycare kiddos and it even fit the first graders, so maybe he'll be wearing it until then?
It is a quick and gratifying knit, and with the color changes it isn't even a boring knit. I am not the sort of person who likes to take a long time at things. I like quick and noticeable progress. This hat is perfect for that.
Last night I posted the hat for some pattern testing on ravelry. If you are interested in being a test knitter check out the thread here.
