Proof that I can knit something in less than a week. Since I had inadvertently knit myself a new hat, I still owed my husband a new hat. I managed to knit this hat without him knowing and have it done in time for his birthday.
Yarn: Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair, colorway Claret (a nice mix of various wine colors and black)
Size:Adult (23″ head circumference)
The hat pattern is pretty gender neutral. It does have a lot of stretch to it (perfect for my husband’s huge noggin) . I decided to stick to the same yarn that I used for my Claudia hat since I’ve been completely happy with the feel and wear of my hat. It is a bit rough when you work with it, but it definitely softens after a soaking – a necessity for an article of clothing worn against the skin. There is nothing worse than an itchy forehead when confronted with lots of shovelling to do!
