Hats That Are Warm and Snug!
I just finished 2 hats this afternoon. The design is inspired by knitting pure and simple. I used Lambs Pride 100% wool from Mitchell, Nebraska along with a 100% cotton rim on the hat with the rolled edge. I love the warmth of a wool hat, but the cotton band near my skin prevents unnecessary itching! The wool is easy to knit with. I used size 7 double points along with a 16" circular needle for the hat with the multi colored rolled edge and size 10 circular needle and double points for the other hat. The hats will be great for snowshoeing in our snowy, woodland property!
