Adorable Hat!

I'm pretty sure that Max doesn't read my blog, and for that matter, I'm fairly certain my brother doesn't, either, so I think I'm safe in posting this - I just couldn't wait! Of course, I'll post more photos once I actually get the hat onto Max's wee head, don't worry.

Isn't it cute? I hope he enjoys wearing it as much as I enjoyed making it!

I basically followed the Viking Hat pattern by Becky Veverka, with a few changes: I had a different gauge, so I cast on fewer stitches, and also rewrote the pattern for the horns so that they were a bit smaller and so that they could be worked in the round... ANYTHING to avoid seaming!

Love the adjustments you made too! It's going to look so good on. Funny I'm the opposite - I'd rather seam than knit in the round. potatoe/potato

oh and i started doodling a "cat house" with a very small opening for walter and a sliding door so I can get the plate of food in. i might try to enlist aaron down the road to help me build it. see, your ideas aren't completely unreasonable.
