Hermione Hat prototype

Hermione Hat prototype, originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

I didn’t actually knit this from a pattern. I charted it myself by looking at already completed hats. The ribbing should be much tighter. It likes to creep up my head. I’m starting to think that I just don’t have a hat wearing head. In order to get the ribbing to tighten up, I unfold the brim when I’m not wearing it, and that seems to work alright for now. This only took about a week to figure out and knit.

Eventually, I want to knit this again in the same yarn as my Holly mittens, so I can be matchy-matchy.
