FO: JACQUES COUSTEAU SEAMAN'S HAT


The pattern is a FREE Ravelry pattern, called THE JACQUES COUSTEAU HAT. It's a CLICK HERE free pattern, however, when I made a copy/paste of the URL...it gives me an internal server error 500. So, if you are a Raveler, you can find the pattern in the hat patterns section, and if not a Raveler, I will be happy to email anyone the hat pattern. As I said, it is a FREE PATTERN. It is knit in the round, casting on 140 for a man's version, 2x2 ribbing for 8 inches, then beginning the unique decrease process.

The yarn is JO SHARP SILKROAD DK TWEED, leftover yarn from my brother's bomber jacket. I made this hat for my brother, to complement his bomber jacket.

However, when my DH saw this hat...he said, "I like this hat better than the other ones you've made me! Boy, this is so cool!"

So I gave it to him.

It's doubtful that my brother would wear a knitted hat anyways.
He has longish curly hair, which he painstakingly primps and styles...and I've never seen him wearing anything but a baseball cap on a bad hair day prolly.

VERY EASY. However, it requires 16" circs for the cast on and the first 10" or so...and finally, after the stitches are decreased to the point that you can't knit in-the-round any further, you must have a set of at least 4 dpn's to finish off the top of the hat. It's not hard, but you have to be able to master knitting from one dpn to another, juggling your stitches on 4 dpn's. I am clumsy at it, but I get it done!

I think Amy must have an excellent video clip for it here under ADVANCED TECHNIQUES or TIPS for knitting in the round on circs and/or dpn's. The sooner you learn it, the better. Just like mattress seaming. Ya just gotta bite the bullet and learn it!

No, it was for my brother, but my DH glommed onto it first! I have a soft spot for DH ...and I think he's just a tad 'covetous' of the bomber jacket I am finishing up for my brother! So I gave him the matching hat...and he took it in a SNAP! Not even so much as a slightest protest!

AND THANKS so much for fixing the link, Jan!!!

My guys don't wear caps, but if they would, I'd make it. Great looking cap.

Probably pretty wise to let you sweetie have the hat, but I've gotta ask, haven't you ever knitted him a sweater?

Yes! I knit him a jacket back in 2006 for our Alaskan Cruise...a May trip, so Alaska had snow and icebergs for us!

He has worn it about 3 times total. He is a 'hot' body...hardly ever wears a coat...and never a sweater. He just says don't waste my time on knitting him anything.

It was called BASKETCASE...pattern taken from a book called "Knit a Sweater He Will Wear". I involved him (per the author's advice) in the selection of the pattern, the yarn, the color, the buttons, and the fit. I used 5 strands of CASCADE 220 WOOL to get the gauge required. This jacket is THICK and warm. Well it worked nicely for Alaska, and one time at home, in an ice storm and power outage, we walked down to the Panera Bakery for coffee (they had lights and hot coffee and Pastries!). And he hasn't worn it since. He likes it...he's just never cold enough to wear it. Or, the cold weather he's in doesn't call for a jacket that is so nice. What can I say. He's an 'easy keeper'. So I just knit for myself and others. Not him.

THE BUTTONS ARE GENUINE ANTLER HORN TIPS. And DH is a hunter.

I love your hat. I don't think my DH would ever wear a hat but I think I will make him one anyway, I may just wear it for him. then maybe matching hats for FIL and my brother.

Also very nice job on your DH coat, shame he doesn't wear it.

I love that hat! I'm sure my husband would wear it -- I'm gonna make him one for the 3 days of real winter we have here in Texas.
