This winter I knit a new hat for my husband. I've knit him several hats since I began knitting 7 years ago and its pretty much always the same hat, knit again and again and again. Why argue with a man who knows what he likes?
Each hat has a ribbed brim, long enough for folding up AND covering the ears, stockinette body, not too loose, not too tight. I've created my own pattern for this (don't worry, I'll share it!) and its a pretty standard recipe. Yet every time I knit one of these hats, I rewrite the pattern. I make just enough changes that it feels like a different hat. My latest creation was a mix between my last set of instructions and this hat, which I sampled the crown decrease from.
I'm very happy with how it turned out!
And so is he!
Here's what I did:
