Pattern Description:

We all have a man in our lives who is just impossible to knit for so here's a simple hat that was designed especially to suit fussy men and ladies too! It's sized from baby to XL adult, so you could make one for all the family if you like!

My boyfriend (who works outdoors) hates knitted hats. He says they're itchy, never fit properly and always look the worse for washing. It's a good job I love a challenge isnt' it? I started playing with ideas for a unisex hat in a gorgeous cashmere blend as it's soft, warm and washable. It's easy to knit, but also gives knitters a chance to try a luxury yarn without breaking the bank.

I've made samples with both the Lion Brand and the Austermann, they're so soft and cosy the model for Knit Now Magazine wanted to keep them :-) I also made another in the texture pattern which used Debbie Bliss BFL Aran which was fabulously soft.

This expanded version of the pattern now available includes a textured version of that hat with ribbed brim rather than folded brim. Both versions are available in six sizes from baby to adult L/XL and will suit men or women. The baby sizes look so cute too but I need to add pictures as soon as I find a model.
