FO: Man Hat. For the manliest man of them all…

So, my loving boyfriend Bret. He has the most enormous noggin of all time. I have a pretty giant head too, but his is bigger. Like ridiculously enormous.

Last year I knit him two hats (Habitat and Botanic). And while he liked them, they really didn’t fit that well. Didn’t cover his ears all the way, slipped up off his head because they were too small around. Totally lame, cause they are AWESOME hats.

Welllll, it appears I finally did it.

Look at that. A hat that (ALMOST) covers his ears completely. And he likes it. In fact, he wore it to work today and apparently bragged about it, according to his co workers. :).

I am very pleased with myself about this one.

Pattern: Man Hat by Haven Leavitt (A former Fairbanksan!)
Yarn: Dream In Color Groovy, Black Pear. 1 Skein
Needle: US9
Mods: I CO 72 stitches and used a needle size bigger, to make it a big bigger.
