Dragon Patterned Knit Hat

Photo credit: Carla Falasco
 Meet Cara, a friend of mine who recently began graduate school at UCSD. Before Cara left St. Louis, I designed this dragon hat for her because she loves dragons.

The hat features 4 dragons breathing fire on a black background. I had this pattern sketched out for over a year before I finally cast on the project and brought it to life. If you would like the pattern, it is here on Ravelry, here on Craftsy, or you can purchase it directly here. As a note of caution, the colorwork is pretty advanced so make sure you wrap the non-worked colors around the working colors so that you maintain the stretch.
My in-flight entertainment! 
Make sure to keep the non-working colors loose so that the hat maintains its give

And finished in the Dallas airport!
