FO - Beanie for Guy Friend

This beanie is for my daughter’s “Guy Friend.” I call him this because she is not allowed to date, but he comes to the house a lot, and they share a locker, and they exchange “I love you” text messages.


Anyhow, he really is a nice guy. He came over last weekend and took care of my three dogs, even cleaning up the pee that was all over the place when he arrived too late Saturday morning to let them out. He saved me $180 by not having to board them. I figured this was the least I could do.

My son was kind enough to model:

The yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease. I used Forest Green Heather and Paprika.

The pattern is called Nothing But Ribbing Beanie, from this pamphlet:

I modified the pattern to allow for the striping.

Thanks for looking!


He sounds like a great kid. I love the colors you chose. great beanie.

It looks great!

Awww! how sweet! I bet he felt bad because he came late for the doggies.

The beanie looks great I love those colors.

That’s really cute! I’m sure he’ll love it.

Love the hat!! And the young man in question sounds really nice :slight_smile:

Sounds like your daughter has a winner. :slight_smile: The hat looks awesome!


nice hat! I think my son would wear something like it! Sounds like your daughter’s guy friend is a nice kid :slight_smile:

Neat hat!!

So, I gifted the hat tonight. I’m not sure if he liked it. He commented that he looks Jamaican when he wears it.


Oh well. That’s teenagers for you.


[COLOR=“DarkOrchid”]This is one beautiful hat… just love the colours. The little bit of red/orange stands out wonderfully and really makes the hat.
I’ve just got to try one of these…
