Carrying on the tradition of knitting my man a hat every Christmas. Knit out of the softest, squishiest, merino wool I have had the pleasure to knit with. Love this yarn! The Tradewinds colorway is so soft and subtle - blue in certain light, gray in others. Perfect for his sky blue eyes : )

Pattern suggests knitting the hat to 7” before beginning 9 row decrease for crown. However, he has a large-ish head. So, I decided to knit to 8” before beginning decreases. This made the hat too long. He’s okay with cuffing the edge, but if I make it again, I will simply start decreasing at 7” as the pattern suggests.
