Just yesterday, Lisa of Polka Dot Cottage posted a pattern she used to make a few Mike Nesmith-style hats for some friends. Last year, she created the hat in the picture above for her son. She tweaked her choice of yarn just a bit and shares how she’s updated the project. Now if only I could knit … Bottom photo via IMDB.
