My ears were cold, and my mood was, um, a bit silly.
Who wouldn't want a hat that makes them look like an Emissary of the Elf People? The pattern is Sloochie (Ravelry link
), the yarn is Gloss HW
, and the pointy top is awesome.
Well, at least in my mind!
The pattern is worked from the pointy tip down to the brim, and there's also a not-pointy version you can knit (but why?). There are also a couple of cute cable options for the brim - you get to pick your favorite.
I used a sewn bind off
for the hat brim, since I wanted it to be as stretchy as possible. Nobody wants a red line around their forehead from a too-tight bind off!
