Knitting Projects - Hats
Mike's hat follows the same pattern noted as the striped beanie but with a few small exceptions. His head is taller so I added 2 rounds to the bottom ribbing of the hat -- total of 40 rounds before you begin decreasing. He also didn't care for so many stripes, so I just made one bigger stripe for 14 rounds (beginning after the 10 rounds of the main color, as outlined above). I used worsted weight Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease yarn, a blend of lamb's wool and acrylic -- the look and feel of wool without the scratchiness of acrylic.
