Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: December 11th to December 18th, 2011
Modifications: Because this was a DK weight yarn I cast on 84 stitches with US 7's. I made it as long as I could until I was scared to run out of yarn. I probably could have done one more repeat but that's okay. The goal was to have this hat be a nice fitted slouchy hat. It fits very nicely and I think it will get slouchier the more he wears it. =]
Make this pattern again?  This is the second time I made a hat from this pattern and I still love the results. I definitely will be making another one maybe for me this time!
Final Thoughts/Recommendations: Definitely recommend this pattern, especially as a gift for a guy.
