I absolutely LOVE making Christmas presents and this hat makes the perfect gift! This hat is for my son (oh, please don’t tell him his mother tried it on!). The pattern is fun to work with. It knits up fast, has a great texture and is real stretchy. Used a wonderful wool yarn – less than one skein and maybe four hours knitting time.
Now I want one for myself, but alas, I plan on making one as a gift for my sweetie first! Here’s the link to the pattern on Ravelry – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/christians-hat. There’s still time for you to make one too!
