Roll the rim all the way up and he's hidden so only you know he's there...
or roll it down and let him be visible..
If someone sees him and you didn't want them to, you can always roll back up the
rim and deny he was ever there is the first place...
What? I don't have an alien on my head. What are you talking about?
Are you feeling okay?
The top is crocheted, the ribbing is knit and the alien is needle felted. The alien is stitched on by his mouth and bellybutton (yes, my aliens have bellybuttons, don't yours?). I may consider writing up the pattern, if you're interested let me know.
