Every time I make a hat for someone my son tries it on and gets all interested in hats for a few days. So I made this one for him last night. It's from the Stitch 'N Bitch book and it's called the PDQ. And PDQ it was! It took me just a couple of hours to make. I used Caron Simply Soft Eco in Wine Country (another color I just love), an I hook, and two blue buttons that my mom bought me from a thrift store a couple of months before she passed away. I thought the buttons looked great. They either clash with the yarn just enough to be really cool or I have bad taste and you (and my son) will just have to deal.
I think I might make a couple more of these. I have a ton of really great buttons that I need to use up.
