Better Late, Then Never

I made these two hats for a friend of mine. She asked for them back in September and I thought they'd be done by end of October, but with the knitting lull I went through nothing was getting done. Oh well, better, late then never!


Hope her boys didn't already out grow them!

************************************************************************

Pattern Source: After making so many hats from Itty-Bitty, I kind of just made these as I went
Yarn: Berroco, Ultra Alpaca
Notes: I used the Duplicate Stitch (it's also called the Swiss Darning Stitch) method to create the skull and crossbones. If you want the the graphic that I created, feel free to download it for your personal use here.

These are great! Just out of curiosity, is the darning stitch very time consuming? I've thought of trying it, but got kind of overwhelmed with how much time it might take.
