View Full Version : FO - "Manly" Kureyon hat

Hey everyone! I had the challenge of knitting something for my brother, and I finally decided to just do something really simple that I know he'll like and use. He's an especially "manly" guy, and he's in the military and loves guns/hunting/etc. so I decided to make him a plain wool hat with a really cool, "camo-colored" Noro Kureyon. I LOVE using Kureyon, but I tend not to use very intricate stitch patterns with it, so the colorways really get to shine.

It's nothing especially great, but I like it as a nice, simple wool hat with a great colorway. Here it is:


Let me know what you think!

I've gotta admit that I had my doubts...until I clicked on the link...

Wow! That turned out perfectly for a guy! I think you picked the perfect yarn and pattern! :thumbsup:

That looks great! My husband would love that hat....I'll have to look more closely at the Kureyon when I'm at the LYS next. Did it just use one ball?

Yes, it used almost exactly one skein. I have a very very tiny bit left over. :D
