Finished Project-Wind Stopper Hat

December 15, 2005 by
Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: my own but inspired by the Live Dangerously, Don’t Swatch Hat (Time was an issue and I needed to just get knitting.)
Yarn: Shetland wool
Needles: two sets of US 10 1/2 circulars
Size: loose on me, too snug on my husband, hopefully just right for the recipient

OK, my main goal for this hat was for it to be really warm and to cover those frost-bite susceptible ears. After knitting it, it was too big. So it got a bit felted to a better size. Then I added a fleece lining including the earflaps. I hope hope hope that it fits the special someone and I hope it doesn’t look too goofy on him either. But who cares when you’re in the middle of a lake ice fishing. As long as you’re warm. Right?

  2. I grew up on a lake and watched ice fishermen all the time – you would not believe the lengths of ‘goofy’ they would go to to keep warm. I’m thinkin’ you have nothing to worry about (although I don’t think it looks goofy at all – it’s a pretty cool hat ;o) )
