Our first model today is my daughter G, who wants one of these hats with a stripey yarn, and minus the button/flap. That can probably be arranged. . .
Next we have the hat on an older model who shall remain nameless.
And finally, Brad's penny jar models the Pi Topper in the front yard.
I wanted to make a quick Valentine's gift for my friend Mary Beth who is going through chemo. This pattern was great -- found it free on the Elann website. I used a different yarn than what was called for -- it doesn't have the elasticity that the Elann Espirit would have, but it is really soft and I don't think it will fall off of her -- although in Oklahoma with the winds, who knows!
