Warm hats for guy friends in Chicago. They were supposed to be Christmas gifts. Ooops. Hopefully the will fit.
The variegated blue hat is the Slip Stitch hat from Knit.1 winter 2006/2007. I made some modifications. I did not like the slip stitch pattern all the way to the top because it looked too rumply in the picture. I used raglan decreases on both hats. The hat looks much better on a larger head than mine (it is smoother). I used ArtYarns Supermerino. I am an ArtYarns junkie.
The green/gray hat is Lana Grossa Easy Yarn. It is a very chunky superwash merino. A very thick and cushy hat. I used #11 needles. No pattern, just your basic hat.
