What was your inspiration?
Story of this hat
A boy had seen a comic figure with such a cool beanie on his head and he liked it for christmas 2012.
A friend of him and work collegue of me asked me if I could knit such a beanie.
So the sock yarn version with 3.5 mm needles one was done.
As he was freezing with the sock yarn version and liked a thicker one for skiing I knit another one in bulkier yarn Lana Grossa Bingo with 5.00 mm needles.
The second one also became a bit larger and longer.
My friend told me he is now walking around indoors and outdoors with the beanies and is the happiest boy on earth now. :-)
What are you most proud of?
It looks exactly the way he'd liked it to be.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Happy knitting! It's easy color stripes only.
