Brimley!

I am frankly astonished that I managed to sneak this guy in, with all the book-designing and Kickstarting and misc-stuff-I-committed-to-perhaps-unwisely-but-I-got-excited-okay? But it's here! And hooray!!

I love this hat because the wide, double-thickness brim means it will actually put up a good fight against the biting winter winds we get here in Michigan. I'm also digging the weird, quasi-experimental decreases and the simple textures. Subbing the picots out for a purl row will butch this hat right up, for anyone in your life who isn't the "picot" type but who still needs warm ears.

And apparently, it just looks good with glasses.

  2. Love it! How many sizes does your pattern come in? The mister has a massive head . . .

    1. Just one (about 22-23", but stretchy) but I think it could be worked at a larger gauge without losing much warmth :-)
