It’s 2015 and this year for the Christmas Pageant at my son’s preschool he was a wiseman.  I had NO idea what to do but his dad came up with this great idea.   He said, “You know those beanies with the beards on them?  Maybe you could do one of those!”  From there I searched http://www.ravelry.com and found 2 patterns that I knew I could use!

 

The first part of the hat was the “Prince Jughead” — http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/prince-jughead

I used Purple for the beanie portion (symbolizing Royalty) and Gold for the crown.

For my 5 year old son, I went with the Child size for the beanie.

The second portion was the “Bobble Bearded Beanie” — http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bobble-bearded-beanie

I went ahead and used dark brown because it was a fun contrast.  I used the medium size.  I stitched it onto the beanie by fitting it on my son in the right part.  It turned out super cute.  Here are a few pics.
