hat

so i started knitting a hat from this pattern that my friend angel posted.  it was nothing like my finished product.  i messed up the beginning so i ripped some stitches out and actually didn’t mess it up!  so i decided i wanted to make it more of a comical hat since the colors were fun. so i basically knitted a square shape with circular needles (after knit two/pearl two to make the fold up brim- is that what it is called?) then stitched up the top and added tassels to both corners. so easy and fun!+
