Want a quick and satisfying project? This hat will do the trick! It also doesn't use much yarn---the hat uses only 45 yds/40 m in the main color and 35 yds/30 m in the contrast color.
The idea for this hat arose because I was smitten with some lovely grey and charcoal heathered Lopi. I knew the colors would look amazing on my Daddy. So, after a bit of swatching of striped owls, this hat was born. I really like it. I like that the owl has a textured breast that is flanked by wingfeathers. I like that the striping is balanced. I like that I can see each owl's feet. With luck, my dad will like this hat, too.
(Note: the matching mittens are available as a separate pattern, or together with this hat in an eBook.)
