FO - Father/Daughter hat
I'm on a hat making kick! From this pattern http://droppedastitch.blogspot.com/2...ghter-hat.html I tried ribbing for the first time so here's my attempt. I loved the pattern but found I could go with either more ribbing or more plain knit rounds so that I had more ear coverage.

Yarn: Plymouth Encore in Dark Chocolate
Needles: 8

Great job. I just used Raglan decreases on a hat too and I think it looks more manly other types of decreases.

It looks great! You could probably do more ribbing or just some plain knitting to make it a little longer if you wanted.

It looks great and I am so proud of you for putting your picture in here. I always want to chop my head off so people don't have to see me.
