My son wanted a hat like Jean Reno’s in Leon the Professional. I used the Halfdome pattern, but knit it in the round. The yarn is Alpaca With a Twist Highlander. I really enjoyed working with it -- very soft, not itchy like some tweeds. I knit the rolled brim on size 3's and the rest of the hat on size 4's for a very dense fabric. A very quick knit.

OMG! He could be Jay Reno's son! The hat is awesome, Slim!
You did a great job! Thank your son for modeling! Most men hate to model! You can tell by the lack of a big cheesy smile!
