A very easy manly hat worked in worsted weight yarn… Designed for a friend who (like every man) had very little requirements.

We all have that man in our lives that we want to knit for, but we never seem to nail it when it comes to making something simple enough for them to love. So this season, I decided to write up this pattern and publish it for free, hoping you still have time to make one or more for your manly men ;)

Enjoy! Joji
