FO: Xmas gift

I made this hat as a gift for the other half. The pattern is Thorpe, from Through the Loops. I love this hat -- it looks dorky, but in a good way. The body yarn is South West Trading Co. Gianna, and the trim is Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky. I did not do the braids as shown in the pattern -- I just did a crochet chain stitch on each of the ear flaps on the front. With that style and color combo, he looks like Darth Vader dressed as a USC fan.
I have lots of leftover yarn, so I'm thinking of making a hat for myself. We'd be dressed so matchy-matchy -- yeesh.
