Out of all the pieces I have knitted for my son over the years, he has always most loved anything that can transform—an accessory that can transform from one type to another, or a piece that can work either as regular clothes or costumewear for neighborhood hijinks.
his accessory can be worn buttoned up all the way as a slouchy hat—just let the pointy top flop down in back—or with the top four buttons unbuttoned for a kerchief-like cowl. Is it time to be an elf? Let the point of the hat stick straight up! Is it time to make a quick getaway? Pull the cowl up around your neck and face and sprint for the hills.
Knit this in a soft, superwash merino for no itching and easy care. Buy buttons specifically for this project, or have fun mixing and matching from your button stash.
