My sister-in-law sent me a text last week.  Something along the lines of, “My friend is having a birthday next week, please make the hat in this picture.”  It was accompanied by this image.


Not much to go on, but I decided to take a whack at it.

Several hours later, and I had this.


I’d say that is a fair approximation and not too shabby for the information I received.  Details of the project are on Ravelry here.  I have to say, I’m rather chuffed at how this turned out.  I hope the recipient enjoys it.
