Now you can make a hat to wear to your next Prince concert (and you should definitely go to one at some point in your life). This hat takes intermediate knitting skills, including knitting in the round, double pointed knitting, Intarsia and chart-reading skills.
I took inspiration from Whitney's 70s ski hat, and included a soft alpaca lining, so you won't have any wool itch on your forehead when wearing it.
You can download my free pattern BY CLICKING HERE. I warn you that the pattern gets a bit loose toward the end, requesting that you try the hat on and customize it to the height you would like. Charts and instructions are all included.
I hope you'll make one and wear it, even if you don't go to a Prince show (like Ingrid, Mr. Jones, and me, circa 2003). The funny thing about this photo is that when we got to Madison Sq. Garden we didn't see one other person dressed up. Ah well, it never stopped up before, and certainly hasn't since!
