Pattern: High-end Hat

There's also a matching scarf.

My brother has extremely expensive tastes. This makes him a very difficult person to find a good Christmas gift for. So whenever he shows interest in an item that I could knit for him, I jump on it. One year, he mentioned that he really admired a hat and scarf set that he saw a celebrity wearing, and would like something like that. And it would be extra awesome if it were reversible. Of course I had to rise to the challenge. This year, I designed this hat. Next year, he’s getting the scarf. And bam, just like that, two years of Christmas taken care of. Thank heavens for knitting.
