Octopus hat

A few months ago, a friend of my partner’s asked if I could make him an octopus hat. He wanted something similar to a scarf he had, where the top of the hat was open, but there was a sufficient enough twist that it didn’t appear to be open.  he also wanted the arms of the octopus to be able to function as a scarf when he was wearing it on his head.

And when it was finally finished…our friend was thrilled.

He even got a little crazy on the subway.
