The Toasty Topper is complete! The name for this hat is spot on. Knit in worsted weight wool (Cascade Quattro) with two strands held together, it is a substantial hat. The idea of the pattern is to combine a hat and scarf into one item. Knowing how Pieter pulls off his hat all the time, I decided to shorten the scarf, overlap, and secure it with buttons. The buttons were a great find - I just received a tin of old buttons from my mom this week and have started putting them to use. For those knitters that are interested, see my ravelry project page for modifications. Pieter was a great sport for the photo shoot this morning - it was 15 degrees F out!
