A warm and woolly winter hat for The Boy.
Pattern: Â Marsan Watchcap, here on Ravelry.
Yarn: Â Malabrigo Worsted in the pumpkin-y "Rhodesian" colourway.
Scarf in the photo is Coquille, blogged here.
We knit the men's medium on 4 mm needles to fit the two-year old Boy. Â The circumference is perfect (a very stretchy and accommodating design in twisted rib). Â But unfortunately the hat is not quite deep enough to fold a double brim (as shown in our photo) so The Boy will be wearing it unfolded. Â Our measurement from cast-on edge to beginning of decreases is 7", probably should have been closer to 10".
