Finally, Jeff's Double Knit Hat
Kim and Jae will also recognize this as "That Dam*n Hat"
Everytime I've knit anything in the last year my dh looks over and says "Is that my hat?", even knowing full well it isn't.
Well, now that we have the boat and the plans to go sailing in the Great Lakes next summer, I figured it was time to actually knit "That Dam*n Hat".
This is the double knit ski hat, directions found on the Blue Blog.
It is fully reversible and is the warmest hat ever.
Yarn: Cascade 220 in yellow and Marine Blue
Needle size 6 Addi circ, 16"
Modeled by a dress form with dh's Foul Weather Gear, which obviously is the inspiration for the color scheme.
Now I only have one left to make - my own of course, and it's to match my foul weather gear. Oh, oops, my foul weather gear jacket is 20 yrs old, and I'm getting a new one before next summer (thinking the Strictly Sail boat show in Feb in Chicago), so mine will have to wait until I find out if I'm getting red or yellow.
