If you're sick of seeing knitted hats...

...you've come to the wrong place.

Nephew #3 requested a hat for his birthday, and wanted solid black (snore).

But, ask and ye shall receive.

  • Yarn: Cestari 3-ply 100% merino in Bulky Black Rose from Unraveled
  • Gauge: 3 stitches per inch
  • Pattern: Cast on 60 stitches; join in round; K3,P3 for 1½", then knit every round for 4½"; decrease & finish according to Super Simple Hat Calculator
  • Needles: U.S. size 11 (8mm) Denise interchangeable circulars & Crystal Palace bamboo 8" DPNs

Proof positive that I do, in fact, finish things once in awhile.

I'll have a few more FO's to share in a day or so. And they'll be more colorful, too. :-)

Is this your first hat??? ;o)

As Juan Epstein would say "Looking good, Mr. Kotter!"

I am really impressed with the amount of use you're getting out of that blue glass head. Excellent purchase.

if it makes you feel any better about having to knit a solid black hat, I told my dad I'd knit him socks. I'm pouring over all the Great STR colors, trying to come up with "his" color. I mean, he's retired, he doesn't need plain ol' boring black socks.

he wants solid socks. no variegated. He's getting them in a nice rust color. but still. solid colored socks. for a MAN!

I do love my dad :)
