Finished Men's Hat
Now that the hat is finished, I can truly say that I highly recommend this pattern if you are looking for a men's hat pattern. The pattern is very simple to follow and the hat turns out perfect. And I knit the whole thing in just a few hours over two days. The pattern is Oskar by Vithard Villumsen available on Ravelry for $0.99, which is well worth the cost.
As I said in yesterday's post, the yarn is a light worsted weight called Kenzie, which is 50% New Zealand Merino, 25% Nylon, 10% Angora, 10% Alpaca and 5% Silk Noils = an incredibly lovely weight and texture. There are about 160 yards per skein, so you need about one and a half to make this hat. I am going to buy another skein of the yarn in a complimentary color and make a second hat. I am thinking stripes...
Here I am wearing the finished hat! It is a bit large on the top for me, but fits my husband perfectly.
