So this is the first project I made that uses different stitches together (it was a big step). I thought that it would be a cool winter hat but it turned out super emo kid-ish. It look worst when my hair was its original color (black, Asian kid black is my natural hair color and no I'm not Asian I part western European). Me plus natural hair, black t-shirt, studded belt and black eye makeup equals a scary emo punk kid.
Her is a picture of me cheesing it up for the camera.

Awesome hat design! For the most part, it was pretty fun to make, too. But...I think I'll refrain from trying to make the entire hat in a single day. I'm exhausted!

hmm... maybe a shorter brim? it looks awfully large, more like a baseball cap than a winter hat, at least.
