Hat So Good, You'll Want to Borrow


Hat So Good, You'll Want to Borrow

How did I come up with the name for the beanie? My hubby "borrowed" the hat and took it to work with him. I had not even sewn in the ends yet. The next before publishing the pattern, I started looking for the hat. I couldn't find it anywhere. I didn't know that he "borrowed" my hat. Long story short....when I asked him if he had seen the hat....he told me that he took it to work with him. So, the hat passed the guy test for sure and would be a great one for the fellas in your life too!

The hat is made with Lion Brand Jeans Yarn, #4 Worsted Weight, 100% Acrylic yarn which, according to the designer, is on the lighter weight side of a #4 worsted weight. If you substitute yarns, you will need to check your gauge before you begin to make sure it meets the requirements for this pattern.

Those distinctive raised bands (Single Crochet Clusters) make it easy to understand why this beanie was borrowed! The original is worked from the bottom up, but the designer also offers a very similar version as a Top Down, and shes even created a scarf/cowl to match. I like both versions of the hat, so I just bookmarked everything. Im bound to make them all eventually.

Now this I like! It's a guy hat, but also a girl hat for the girls who are not so girly-girly. It's got a nice stitch pattern and I like the banding around the bottom of the hat. It gives a nice finishing touch. The top of the hat is sewn together with your yarn and a tapestry needle. If you want a nice even star on the top, just evenly space your sewing with your stitches. For instance, sew into every 5 stitches. Or whichever number you want. If you sew through every stitch just know that you will have a really tightly bound hat on the top.
