Eric’s favorite knitted thing is a hat. So I knit him a new hat for Christmas. Of course, it can’t be scratchy and it can’t be too flashy and it can’t be too bulky and it has to be long enough that there’s something to pull down over the ears…you know this guy, right?

This is a simple hat with great results. You can use the craziest hand dyed sock yarn in your stash or that skein of cashmere sock yarn that you know will just end up with a hole worn in it if you make socks out of it. It’s the ultimate vacation or commute project because it takes up very little space in your bag and doesn’t require your full attention to knit. It’s all ribbing, and that makes it incredibly stretchy and hard to mess up.
