A Beanie with a message

May The Force Be With You. Another hat with a message for my son. He'll wear it if its malabrigo inside next to his ears and the forehead. I find hats without a second layer around the ears to be too drafty in the NYC winter. I think I got the chart for the letters from Hello Yarn. The hat pattern is generic. To get the inner part, you do a provisional CO and join when the outside matches the inside in length. The only problem now, I need another mindless project for 24 and Lost.....
Malabrigo, Kureyon, Addi circ US7. Knitting from stash=Priceless!

I love this!!! Do you post your projects on Ravelry? I'd love to stick it in my favorites as inspiration when I start knitting things for next winter! (I'm lobo on Ravelry.)
