Non-Military Navy Hat
This is the hat I made for my oldest nephew. He decided that he just wanted a "plain" tight fitting cap. He is not into the "military" theme as his brother is, and just wanted it done in a plain navy color. Kind of ironic that he picked "navy" since his brother is into "army". (The hat doesn't show as a navy color in the pic due to the camera flash.) I think he still secretly wants that rastifarian hat he first asked for. It may still be in his future! Perhaps a birthday present. Gives me lots of time to work on it since his birthday isn't until August! The hat on an unwilling model... My oldest daughter. Can you tell I finished this hat before I purchased the replacement model... er... styrofoam head. I tried to use Chelle's soldier hat pattern that was posted on Crochetville, but it just didn't work out for me. I think it is due to the nature of the yarn. It's Bernat Softee Chunky. So I just ended up winging the pattern to make it fit.
