The Antler Hat

This is a gift for a friend of mine. He kindly asked if I would knit him a woolen hat for winter and here it is!

The pattern is a free one by tincanknits. It is well written and easy to follow. I have knit the largest size on 4mm and 5mm needles using 78g of Cascade Yarns 220 superwash. I have omitted 2 pattern repeats as the hat was long enough already. The yarn is a classic workhorse.  It knits up well and is rather durable (I have used it for a pair of mitts years ago, they’re still alive and pretty). Nonetheless, I still prefer shetland yarns and shaded handdyes.

By the way, there are more hats to follow soon. The next one is going to be a Double Crossed hat which will become a christmas gift.
