Yes, my man is a good sport. Originally he didn't want me to use this picture but then he must have thought "Well, I don't know anyone on this forum, so what the heck".
The yarn is your commonest acrylic in bottle green suitable for needle size 4.5 to 5.5 mm. The style is regular ribbing and gradually decrease.
I think that this hat might be a little funny looking and I will not be offended if my friend does not ware it. I wanted to use up the yarn that I had left over from the scarf and she can keep it just as a gift from me.
