Off my needles

Hat #8 is done. I’d call this a guy hat but I love how nice and cushy the yarn feels and how it is long enough to fold up and cover my ears completely with a double layer so let’s say it could be a boy or girl hat!

  • Pattern – Ribbed Knit Beanie – this was a free pattern available online at one of the yarn sites but the link I had for the pattern no longer works
  • Yarn – Paintbox Simply Aran
  • Needles – size 10


  1. I knit myself a similar hat last winter with I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby – it’s VERY warm – perfect for our Ontario winters! I’m sure that your hat will be loved – and guys like soft and cushy too!

  2. That dark grey could even be both very casual and be worn with a more “dressy” coat. Good yarn choice!

  3. This is the perfect giftaway hat. Color popular with everyone, style simple and well loved. You have found a great combination.
