TWO HUNTER'S HAT DONE!
Hi'ya!

Thanks to the pattern search help I received from my KH sisters...I cast-on and finished two hunter's hats for DH. Start to finish: 2 days.

Here they are, kinda unusual and maybe dorky looking...but they will do the job they are intended for! They are knit with KnitPicks DK Merino Style wool. Only use wool for hunter's or mountaineer's cold weather clothing.

This is the Blue Hills Hat. Link HERE


Earflaps can be worn up, if desired. I used 3 strands held together with a US 11 needle for correct gauge. Warm and Cozy!


This is the Balaclava Helmet. Knit single strand with US 9.
HERE is the pattern link.


Can be worn covering the nose as well.


I made the dicky extra long in back...to help keep his shoulder muscles warm and loose.

My boyfriend loves the helmet! He wants me to make him a viking one to fit under a helmet when he fights in the SCA. Excellent job!!

Nice job on the hat/helmet. It looks like your husband is pleased and is exactly what he needs for hunting. It is sure nice to be able to make things like that and not have to go buy it, isn't it? Hooray for knitting!

Very nice! I just showed the pictures to my husband, and now he wants me to make him the helmet for hunting too.

Very nice, ArtLady. I like the balaclava best, but the other one is good too, especially when down. I don't know if the orange screams enough. It's nice to see some pictures of your DH. He looks like a nice guy. Or... possibly a band robber. Just kidding. Merigold

Those are both great!
I especially like the one that you can fold up.

Has anyone ever told you that your DH looks a lot like Jason Robards??(pic #2) Nice job on the hats/helmets. DH works outside so I'm thinking of making him the balaclava. Any suggestions for yarn subs with low or no wool content??

Those look warm and toasty--perfect for cold weather. How'd get your husband to model for you? Gun to the head?

Just kidding. None of my family is very cooperative about modeling for me--even with a gun.
