First, the double, which was started here:
It’s the double knit hat, made with Cascade 220. Even with no hair, my sweetie’s head is a good 24″, which is considered “extra large” according to most patterns. He must be extra smart. But it’s no wonder I could never make a hat big enough for him when he had hair. He says to tell you, Beth, that this hat is “soft and wearable. ”
The next two hats, intended to be Christmas presents, will look like this, one blue and one red:
They are Beatrice Hats (named for the yarn evidently) designed by Annie Modesitt, found in the Classic Elite Tweed Three pattern book. I ordered the yarn and book to make hats for last Christmas, but somehow never got to it. And what did I do, in spite of reading the pattern? I only purchased 2 balls of yarn per hat, rather than the 3 called for. So, more has been ordered and is on the way, but these are on hold until the fedex man shows up at our door.
