FO: Halfdome

My son wanted a hat like Jean Reno’s in [I]Leon the Professional[/I]. I used the Halfdome pattern, but knit it in the round. The yarn is Alpaca With a Twist Highlander. I really enjoyed working with it – very soft, not itchy like some tweeds. I knit the rolled brim on size 3’s and the rest of the hat on size 4’s for a very dense fabric. A very quick knit.

Very cool and looks to be very warm!

Slim, really like this hat, where did you find the pattern?linknit41

Sorry, I meant to include a link. It’s from

That is a cool hat!

great hat, looks good on your boy

OMG! He could be Jay Reno’s son! The hat is awesome, Slim!
You did a great job! Thank your son for modeling! Most men hate to model! You can tell by the lack of a big cheesy smile!

It turned out perfect!! Looks like he loved it too!

Your son looks quite handsom in it!

Congratulations!!! …on the new grandbaby (and the hat too of course)

love this hat!
