It's so hard to be married to a knitter. (Yes, that was sarcasm). You get things custom-knitted for you, you're even given input on what you would like to have in the final product, and all the knitter asks is for a model when it's done. Why "Restraint"? Because absolutely everything I suggested for the hat (cables got voted down here - alas!) was voted down. And so this is a model of considerable restraint, all things considered. It's a simple, fast, fun knit and it's reversible, so if you want to knit one for yourself, you can wear the slightly-more-decorative other side facing outward. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting in the round GAUGE 24 sts/24 rounds = 4" in 2x2 ribbing at bottom of hat, unstretched 18-20 sts/24 rounds = 4" in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Fits up to 22" head easily,
