Occam's Beanie

('Cause the simplest hat is often the best!)

I made, and sold, a hat similar to this years ago and I have missed it ever since...so I re-made it! I also thought perhaps it was time for me to put out a really beginner-friendly pattern... and one you can crank out mindlessly for gifts for everyone you know ;-)

So yes, it is quite simple... but it also looks great on and is highly menfolk compatible!

^ a manfolk.

I recommend using a yarn with a touch of drape to it- it's shown here in Madelinetosh Vintage (in "Manor"...drool) which is fabulous, and the original prototype was a silk-wool blend which was also very well suited to the shape.

You can see it on Ravelry here
or Craftsy, here
