Although I have never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, but both of my adult sons love it. I am more of a King Arthur fan with my favorite book of all time is Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I usually read it about every other year just to return to that fantasy land. So this is the hat that I made for my son. I am working on the another for the other one. No matter what, I love dragons and the mythology around them.

One feature of this hat that is special is I knitted a fairly large lining before starting on the front of the hat. This accomplishes two things:

First, it makes the hat especially warm over the ears because it is double thickness.

Second, it covers all the stranding from the design so you don’t catch them by accident while wearing it.

I want to experiment with a couple of other colors as well and I will post those as well. Until then, enjoy!
