FO - Double Hat, I'm so proud, it fits!
I'm soooo happy with myself. I actually made a normal size hat for a man, FINALLY! I'm going to meet with my friends to give one of them the hat and the other a scarf for the hols. I adapted the pattern from a sockyarn hat, I posted the adapted pattern on my blog right here.

Thanks Ingrid, I loved doing it. Much more successful than the GIANT double-knit hat I had originally nearly finished for my friend.

That looks amazing, you should be proud. How do you do that? Do you make two hats and seam them together? Very curious!

It's actually all knit as one. You do a provisional cast on and knit a hat, then you pick up the live stitches from the cast on and knit another. This is the first time I've done it, and yes, I am proud.

That's awesome! I love the gray and orange. :D
Is it difficult to knit the second hat? It seems like the first would get in the way...
