Armstrong Hat

by | Dec 23, 2010 | Uncategorized


My son is obsessed with his guitars. Yesterday he spent a good part of the afternoon building a cardboard replica of his Ibanez and now he wants to string it up and see if he can play it. He teaches himself songs, and he practices all the time. So of course when he got to name his own hat, he opted to name it after a rockstar. So his hat is the  Armstrong Hat – named after Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.


If you look closely you can see the cord for his necklace – he wears a guitar pick around his neck anytime he’s not at school.


The hat is completely reversible and has a deep fold-up brim per the boy’s request. It knits up quickly in Cascade 220 on size 7 (4.5 mm) needles. It’s available in small, medium, and large sizes in written and charted instructions. Available for purchase for $6.00  or in a 3-pattern hat e-book for $8.95.

    That would be Billie Joe Armstrong. 🙂 Your son sounds like a cool kid! And now he’s got a cool hat! Very nice work. Maybe when I learn to knit (I just crochet for now), I’ll try out the pattern.

    Does your son also sit infront of the computer with his guitar, trying to learn songs off youtube? Yours sounds alot like mine. Mine also plays the drums, keyboard and trumpet.
    Someday my house will be very quiet.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Corrina!

    I love this hat. Can you tell me it the stitch pattern is written out or do you have to follow a chart? I hate charts.
