I was joking with Cindy about needing to knit her a hat to wear during her running expeditions, and she asked if I could knit one of those hats with the attached beards, because they’re awesome. I knew exactly what she was talking about, and went off in search of patterns.
Turns out, there’s an entire web site dedicated to them. Check out Beardhead.com, if that sort of thing interests you. (These are actual finished projects, not patterns, which makes me both happy and sad.)
