It seems that knitters are fond of Harry Potter and I'm no exception. When I purchased Weekend Knitting, this kid's hat was one of the first things I wanted to make.
The "almost famous" part of the title refers to the fact that this hat was supposed to be for a scene in HP when baby Harry is delivered to his aunt Petunia's doorstep. Alas, it was a warm day, no need for a wool hat!
Ignore my craptastic stranded knitting.
Knitters always want to see the inside.
Did I mention there were a zillion ends to weave in? In fact, it was when I started this hat at BobaKnit that Kristi alerted me to Aija's tutorial on weaving as you go.
I did start doing that but even then, there were a boatload of ends to weave in!!! Here's just one side of ends.
