Wally is a great everyday hat. I designed this for my dad who is a no fuss kind of guy. Simple lines work with pretty much any yarn and this hat is a quick knit. This “lid” will keep your “noggin” and ears super warm which is important because my dad always said “common sense is always in style” and being cold and grumpy is “the worst thing for you”. He is totally knitworthy and appreciates handmade woolens. “Do yourself a favor” and find some yarn and knit one up… “if not now… when?”
