Clover Knit Hat

Nic with Kody and Zeppelin 
My friend Nic defended his thesis in January.  For his PhD work, he studied the variation and evolution of traits in white clover.  His research allowed him to travel around in the United States, Canada, and New Zealand to collect clover samples and study how certain traits and gene expression varies in different climates and altitudes.  This description definitely does not do his dissertation work justice and if you want to learn more, check out his website here.

To celebrate all his hard work and wish him good luck in his post-doctoral research position at the University of Virginia, I made him a clover hat.  I designed the hat to have 3-leaf clovers all around and one 4-leaf clover for good luck.  The pattern can be accessed here.

Many thanks to Loren and Nic for taking the awesome pictures in the hats.  Check out Loren's Prairie Dog Hat as well!
