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!
Here it is after a few ends were woven in. I have since double crocheted a trim around the brim and ear flaps and now it is blocking, with it entirely stretched around my son's little tigger ball.
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.
