Finished Hat Shots

I have many things I want to post about because my holiday weekend was REALLY productive, but I am going to do my best to hold back so you can read some interesting stuff later this week.

Today I'll show you hubby's finished hat. He said he really likes how it looks, but it lets in too much wind. I supposed I could line it with fleece, but we'll wait and see how necessary that is.

I'm happy with how it turned out. I don't generally like turned up hats, but I'm not the one wearing it so that's not really important.

The pattern I used was Jacques Cousteau Hat (on Ravlery) . The only reason I even used a pattern was because I wanted David to see what the finished product would look like instead of me putting in a lot of work and then him not liking it.

I liked the pattern and it was simple. So simple in fact that I let myself get confused about the decreasing for no reason - but I didn't have to do any ripping out. I know I took a photo of the decreases, but apparently I forgot to put it on my flash drive so I guess you'll just have to look at David's face.

Also this weekend I made these Toasted Coconut Shortbread Cookies and I highly recommend them - really great! My only recommendation would be to take down the salt even just an 1/8 tsp. Enjoy!


  1. I can't believe that you dyed the fiber, spun the yarn, and knit the hat already! It looks awesome! Thanks for linking the pattern too!

    I have a bag of sock yarn for you but haven't made it into town on a week day. I'll be at the store Saturday though . . .

  2. Lovely hat. Your hubby is one lucky man to receive such treats from you.

  3. That really turned out nice!

  4. It's nice to know that you find my pattern useful in the states. I'm almost confused how men around the world are so pleased with this hat. Thank you for choosing my pattern.
