Arrrrgh, this hat be large, says I

Tall Pirate Hat

I've finished my second We Call Them Pirates hat, this one for my brother. The last pirate hat was a little smaller than expected, and this one is much larger, but I think it should fit my brother fine. There's definitely going to be some extra space at the top, but I like the way it looks, and I'm planning to test it out tomorrow on the way to work. Just in case it doesn't fulfill the normal hat functions, I'd rather find out before I give it away. Also, lately I've realized that even though I love my Shedir, the shape of it isn't quite (or even remotely) right for my head/haircut. I think I like the shape of the pirate hat better, so I might try another hat, maybe with skulls, maybe with something else. Suggestions?

Here's a photo of the inside of the hat, part of the lettering (our last name) is visible:

Big Pirate Hat Lining

I can't tell you how tempted I was to knit "Capt. Jerk Face" into the lining. Maybe next time, maybe next time.

Awesome hat! And you knitted your name into the lining? Okay, over achiever girl...

Just read your comment on today's Yarn Harlot post (Madrona). You were afraid the mitten class would kick your but - so you're taking her BOHUS class??!?!?! Haven't taken the mitten class, but I took the Bohus class at Stitches West last year. You know, it's not exactly knitting a garter stitch scarf itself.

Good luck and enjoy Bohus. I loved it and she has so much to share.

The Captain Jerk-face comment made my morning. That's a great hat!
