Seems like everyone these days is playing or knows about Minecraft. My son just caught the bug, and is constantly calling me to the computer to see the creatures that live in this virtual world. The Creeper is one of the bad guys, so I worked him into a harmless motif for a winter hat.

Featuring a two-color cast on and corrugated ribbing for visual interest, the pattern is subtle, but fans of the game will immediately recognize the little villain.
