Finished this hat while I was visiting HILDIE'S HOUSE today! For DH....Plymouth Encore worsted wt. No real pattern, just kinda went off one I made before. CO provisionally, knit hat in one direction, picked up prov CO sts, knit the hat in the opposite direction with a P, K, and P row in between.

I call it a fake double-knit hat because I didnt use the double-knitting tehnique, but its still double-thick. :thumbsup:

did you sew them together at the crown or something so they don't come apart? I think you should make a smaller one for Howie :happydance:

I kinda use the tails of each hat to attach them a bit. Id have to make ear holes for Howie's! :roflhard:

I cast on provisionally, knit the hat in one direction, then picked up the provisional sts and knit the same hat in the opposite direction with opposite colors.
