Rizzo Beanie

I created this pattern last minute for a birthday party. I only met the birthday boy once but he had a hat on in his profile Facebook picture so I thought why not make something similar. Hence the Rizzo hat named after the birthday boy himself. I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did! Happy making and thank you for choosing OhMyKnit!
