Dave’s Christmas project was to knit himself this hat to match Milo’s. In fact, he originally made Milo’s for himself, but the gauge was way off so it ended up fitting Milo (first blogged here, when Milo was so wee and chubby!), so this is only following his original plan. Milo was super chuffed to match his papa! The pattern is we call them pirates and I recommend swatching before setting off because the needle size they recommend for the adult (the only) size is what Dave ended up with the child’s size with.
