Going on an adventure? Are you in need of a proper adventuring hat? Never fear, the Elven Hero hat is here.
It will keep your hat nice and cozy when you are off on a quest, beating up bad guys and saving princesses. If you are in more of a marauding mood, the hat can be made with brown yarn. Or if the Santa look is more your style, you can knit the hat in red with a white brim and pom pom.
The hat is $5 and can be purchased on ravelry or on the bear-ears site.
The hat is constructed by provisionally casting on the brim edge. The brim is grafted together, then folded over to make it double thick and well fitted. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the brim to complete the rest of the hat body.
My pattern testers have told me that they found the pattern easy to follow and easy to execute despite it being an unusual construction.
