One of my first knitted hats was by Woolly Wormheads and they were in the flat. This one is not.

Here are different views with my cool Kilt socks on.

The hat calls for Worsted Weight Wollemeise, no such thin today. I went ahead and substituted with two strands of dk weight. I did a swatch and decided to go with the smaller of the hat sizes and with US 6 needles instead of US 7. I think it came out nice. Thanks for stopping by. Oh you can find the pattern on Ravelry under Medici.

Quite nice and a great pair up with the Kilt socks.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

New York Built's picture look like a pillar of the Florenzan community! Andrea Magnifico, Rennaisance Man. I know, I know...underneath the kilt and hand knitwear, you are the basic and wholesome Vitruvean Man. But the Celtic/Pict/Etruscan thing you've got going is outstanding.

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Thanks for your kind words Mark. The hat gave me a sense of Florenze and the Renaissance, I made the hat from the same wool as the socks. I enjoy being kilted man.
