A quick hat

Just a quick FO to share today: a beanie hat for a friend using up odds and ends of Patons Diploma dk. I based it on the Oliver's Cap pattern, but cast on 110 stitches (he has quite a large head) and did a 5" ribbed brim as he likes hats that can be pulled right down over the ears.


It needs to be wrapped up now and gifted so I just bribed my DS2 (aged 6) to briefly model it for me. I had to bribe him with chocolate which is why is has a slightly odd expression - his mouth is full of my best Green & Blacks organic white chocolate!
