Sleep hat for sibling C

Since I’m trying to use up the merino wool from the failed sweater, I’ve been asking if anyone has knitting requests! Sibling C is perpetually cold and tries to avoid using a lot of energy on heating in the winter, so she requested a sleep hat.

I modified this baby pattern (pictures of the finished product here) by casting on 107 stitches and using short rows to make the top curlier and pointier and more elven (:

I-cord ties! They are knit top-down, with the initial stitches picked up from the edge of the hat.
Stockinette with a garter stitch border in a smaller needle size (3 mm).
Looks kinda dorky…
The hat has three points; one comes down on the forehead, the other two create ear flaps and allow for I-cord attachment.
Pointy top!
