Traditional Norwegian Hat

I promised to knit a Norwegian style hat for my son who is moving to the windy city very soon, and he asked for one in navy blue, gray, and white, and I bought two kits from Bea Ellis, one in black and white, and the second in navy and light gray. Both have a knit cotton liner which will cover the forehead and ears. The first one is finished here. The next one is almost done.

Just in case the cord and tassel is too much for him, it can simply be cut off and removed. I tied a knot in it on the inside for easy removal - it is not stitched in and the integrity of the hat will not be impaired if cut off.
