I finished this on Christmas Eve, in time to block and dry before we gave it to Tim on Christmas Day. No picutre of Tim, but his head is a little larger than Zoe’s, so it fits him very well. I loved the yarn — Plymouth Cleckheaton 8-ply — and highly recommend it for warm winter items.
The ear flaps are not quite as tapered as the AE version, but the recipients are happy, so I’m not worried about it. Not bad for a made-up pattern.
