Pattern Description:

Need a hat to have an adventure in? Look no further. The Elven Hero hat is your hat. The Elven Hero hat is perfect for any enemy smoting, princess saving adventure you might have.
To achieve marauding outlaw look, use brown yarn. If you'd rather create a Santa look, use white yarn for the brim and red yarn for the main body of the hat. A white pom pom could also be added.
The hat is constructed by provisionally casting on the brim edge. The brim is grafted together, then folded over to make it double thick and well fitted. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the brim to complete the rest of the hat body.

I taught myself to knit in 2005, crochet in 2006 and spin in 2010. It seems I have a habit of developing hobbies.
Fiber truly is a passion. I've worked at a wool mill, done knitting for a farmers market and currently work at a yarn shop. And like everyone else, I'm working on a book. But I figure anyone can start a book, the only thing that matters is that I finish mine.
