Howell's Hat

As I said, Llanelli is a knitting black hole.
I have no babies to knit cutesy ickle hats and booties for, mainly because that's just not 'my bag' but as my brother, Howell, is only 2 yrs. old I thought maybe I'd break with tradition (bag) and make him something.
He used to watch a lot of Peppa Pig (I suspect he had no choice thanks to my 4 yr. old sister being a major bossy boots, not unlike Peppa herself) in which George Pig, Peppa Pig's bossed about little brother, is obsessed with dinosaurs.
Even though he's 2 yrs. old all Howell can really do is make noises and he does a mean dinosaur impression. So...

Howells DinoHat!

(If you're wondering why I haven't got a pic of him wearing it, it's because he wore it for all of ten seconds
But you can't pick your family.)
