The 'Boyfriend Hat' sounds so fanciful, so free, and somehow so twenty year old, so that bit isn't working for me. Let's try 'Over a Certain Age, Mortgage Owner, Husband to Opinonated Lady, Father to Three Kids, Plus Dog, Plus Worm Farm Hat'. Any takers?
Mr MyrtleandEunice isn't arguing. It's the first bit of relatively non-scary craft his Mrs has created for him. All with the help of the free pattern donated by Stephanie Nicole.
I suspect Mr has a largish head. Instead of knitting 5.5" before decreasing, I kept going to 8.5". This caters for the requested 'turnover' but doesn't explain three whole inches extra. The wool is a Rowan Pure Wool Aran 100g skein, the needles 4.5mm circulars followed by the double pointed versions.
A good, therapeutic knit hit, that hat.
