Boyfriend Hat and a Giveaway Winner

Amy Friendgiveaway, knitting4 Comments

My husband doesn’t like to wear hats. It was a great surprise to me when he started talking about maybe needing me to make him a hat too. He has started thinning (a lot) and his head gets very cold when he is in his workshop in the unheated barn. I decided to try the Boyfriend Hat which has some really fun decreases at the top. I used the recommended Mission Falls 1824 Wool, 100% merino superwash but chose a tricolor called “Granite.” I was hoping that the name of the color alone would help him to like the hat.

He is still trying to decide if he will wear it or not. He likes it but is trying to get past the not liking to wear a hat hurdle. Even though I told him that this style doesn’t cover the ears unless I add an inch, he decided to go with it as the pattern was written. Now he says to me, “Since it doesn’t cover my ears, they might still get cold, and until I lose all of my hair, it might be redundant to wear a hat.” I rolled my eyes.

And last but not least, the little house potholder giveaway goes to:
