I decided to take a break from another project so that I could make a hat for Mike. I was beginning to worry that by the time I finally had time to make a hat to match his fingerless mitts that it’d be too warm.
Also I knew that knitting up a hat in the middle of the other projects that are on my needles would be quick and satisfying. I chose the Regular Guy Beanie because I knew I needed something simple for the yarn.
It turned out great.
I cast on 8 extra stitches because after reading some notes on Ravelry. Knowing what I do now, I’d probably do 12 although it fits Mike perfectly. It would have made the decreases make more sense even though I think it turned out good.
