I made this beanie for my son. It's the first time someone in my immediate family has requested a knitted item, so I gladly put down my current WIP.

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease. The colors are Paprika and Forest Green Heather.

The pattern came from this pamphlet, which I bought at Hobby Lobby:

I altered the pattern a bit to allow for the striping. Basically, I worked three rounds of ribbing with the green yarn and one round with the orange.

Thanks for looking!

Cool-O! Ribbing makes such nice thick, stretchy hats.

Great hat, bet he loves it.

The guys in Iraq like soft warm hats either in camo colors or black. The ones that the military issue aren't any too comfortable, according to friends.

Great hat, bet he loves it.

I've gotta tell you that he was out of town at a youth retreat when I finished. When he got home, he got out the yarn shaver and went over the hat with it.

He wore it all night tonight...claimed his head was cold, even though it was in the 70's here today. :teehee:

Makes me feel good.

And yes, I think it would be a GREAT hat for the troops overseas. It's really quite comfy.
