The third hat for my brother-in-law - this one better fit!

The first hat was a Struan - unfortunately the yarn was just too scratchy, even though it fit nicely. The second hat was a Skinny Skid - which was just too tight. I coud have steamed it to get a more relaxed fit but my nephew claimed the hat.

So this is my third attempt - I know he likes the Struan pattern since he wanted a hat with a bill, but that still covered his ears. The MadTosh is absolutely not-scratchy, and even though the color looks almost black, it’s still green, just a very dark green.

If this one doesn’t work out, then I’ll have to figure out something else…
