In November, I told my friend Cary that I would knit him a hat. He said he needed to buy one and I insisted “No! I’ll make you one.” Then it took me 2 months to fulfill the promise! There were so many holiday gifts to finish. Plus, the first hat I made was too small (my fault for not reading ravelry notes). So, I actually made him 2 hats. The first one went to my son. Here is the finished product:
I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca (50% wool and 50% alpaca) and this tutorial. It’s pretty straightforward. Someone who is experienced with hats wouldn’t need a pattern for this. I’m new to hats. And my first one was a bit of a failure, so this simple pattern was much appreciated!
