jake’s hat

Pattern: His + Hers Knit Hats from the Purl Bee
Yarn: Lion Brand Alpine Wool in Chili

I intended to finish this hat for Jake’s birthday back in November.  Then I was hoping for it to be done by Christmas.  Now, finally, it is finished!  (The delay was not due to any challenges in the pattern — it was a quick knit, easy but not boring.  I simply wasn’t up to making anything for a while.)  I love the puffy ridges.  The yarn is a darker red than it shows in the pictures, and not so orangey. 

As I was knitting I could tell it was getting a little longer than I wanted it to be, so I began decreasing rounds earlier than the pattern called for.  However, it still turned out too long and Jake has to wear the brim rolled up.  But he is a good sport and doesn’t mind!
