  2. Thank you for the pattern. I just made a version of this in Seahawk colors for my friend who always has her natural hair in an afro ponytail. She loved it! I was so excited to give it to her that I neglected to get a photo of the finished hat. I asked her to give me a picture when she wears it so I can have it for my files. It was an easy and fun pattern.
