Drosophila Knit Hat

I designed this hat for Jim Skeath, an awesome researcher and professor at Washington University in St. Louis. Jim studies developmental biology using Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies) as a model organism. To thank Jim for all the support and advice he gave me through my graduate career, I knit him this hat featuring drosophila (note the red eyes). I designed several iterations of the pattern (several had legs and some had the wings straight out) before I settled on this pattern.

You can find the pattern here on Ravelry, here on Craftsy, or buy directly here. Enjoy!
