I needed a gauge swatch for a sweater I was planning so I decided that I would knit a hat as my swatch. I really, quite like it. Great fit and not likely to give me “flat head” because it isn’t tight. It has enough length to give it the ability to “slouch” and it’s definitely very warm in natural fiber yarn. The textured look from the slubs in the handspun give it a wonderful personality. The simple designs helps to showcase the “hand spun-ness” of the yarn.
This is a quicky, knit it up in an afternoon.
