Nana's Firemen's Cap!

Here is the pattern I designed after a firemen wanted me to knit up a hat for him. (Once I see him he will be picking out a name for this  cap as well.) so many of you have blessed me so on your interest in the pattern. I'm so a giver so this is for you all. Someday maybe I will see or find away to sell my patterns. But for know I shower you with this. Please leave a comment and take a photo of your hat once done. Would love to see your finish knitted project.
