Made this hat for my DH tonight. He liked my "Unoriginal Hat" so much! I caught him trying to pull it on over his big ole noggin. I said, "No, that's my hat
He says. "Oh...nice hat. I like how thick the yarn is!"
He's sleeping now. HIS hat
is on the breakfast table!
This is how the hat fits!
I didn't follow the color combo from the pattern. I just liked the slip-stitch. I think it gave additional earthiness to the hat, along with the colors of the yarn. The pattern stitch is nice and thick, and that's what my husband wanted...a heavy, thick hat. He's got this old, old, old wool, moth-eaten hat he keeps dragging out of his foot locker, and saying, "You know, a hat like this. Say, can you mend this?" The hat is pitiful. But the man just won't toss it out! (Like Linus and his holey, moth-eaten blankie!
) If I mend it, it will fall apart again and again. It's just too dang old. DH and I have been down this road.
PATTERN TAKEN FROM THIS BOOK,
I saw it tonight on AMAZON for $9.60.
