Pattern: Scott Pilgrim hat



Scott Pilgrim hat~

I saw this hat in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and fell in love. I couldn't remember the exact colors but I tried my best. So this pattern is based upon the hat in the movie! Along with the hat in the comic (you can even roll it up into a snail looking hat pictured on the Ravelry page but since I fail at posting pictures here there is only a teaser )
I used almost a skein of the brown and maybe half of the blue. I must admit I didn't do a swatch before I started but I'm a tightish knitter. This pattern is totally untested so please tell me if I screwed up! I sort of forgot what I did for the crown so if it is odd don't worry it will all block out
