I tend to feel selfish knitting for myself in San Diego.
Especially when I get emails from my perhaps-someday-boyfriend in Ohio about the single-digit temperatures..
So to redeem myself, I set to knitting him some warmth.
Picky as I am, I searched a reaally long time for a nice man-hat pattern.
And here is what I came up with.
You can find the pattern here:
It is really simple and quick, and it made me happy.
Here you can see the ribbing-disappearing effect:
I knitted with two strands of yarn (one blue, one cream) at the same time.
Unfortunately, I sent it off to my Ohioan boy and he has informed me that it is too small
But he's going to send it back and I am going to ATTEMPT to lengthen it.
Anyone have any suggestions?
The only way I can think of is to pick up stitches around and just keep knitting the rib pattern...
I'll do my best.
Wish me luck!
