Georgia Tech Beanie

Crochet, Project #118

I made this bright yellow beanie hat for my brother at Georgia Tech. It is made in school colors and designed to look like the stripes on their mascot, the Yellow Jacket. The beanie should look cool while keeping him warm at football games. As a bonus, the yarn is machine washable.
