Behold, the hat!
The amount of scrunchiness in the back will be adjusted once I have the target head to hand, but this gives the general idea. Once it has been adjusted, those wee dangling strings will be removed.
If you think you might like to test it, find me on ravelry and volunteer (I’m all set on this one, thanks. But feel free to join the Violently Domestic group if you want to know about future tests). More details and photos to come.
