My little brother’s all grown up and in college. When I think of him, though, I still sometimes picture him 10 years old and adorable. He goes by “Joe” now, but I still think of him as “Joey” at times. I wanted to knit him a hat low-key enough for a college man, but with some fun elements for the kid in him. The result: the Joey hat!
