"Daniel" and extra large Fair Isle Hat

A friend of mine loves acrylic yarn hats. I only make hats for him as it is a fun venue and I get to play with different synthetic yarns, specifically acrylics. I make hats for him and he does appreciates them a lot. This pattern is my own, "Daniel" it is brought up to 152 sts on worsted weight Paton's Canadiana. It s the kind of hat he likes and I am sure his Rasta hair will fit without problems.

I am always amazed at the flexibility that hats allow for shaping and this hat is one of them.

Andy...you continue to amaze me!

Andy, that is brilliant. I wonder what shape it will become when he tucks the dreadlocks into it.

Great hat, great knitter, and great painting. You definitely brightened my day, Andy.

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

Another successful project to your credit! I really like the flexibility of the hat. As soon as I've finished the socks on my needles I am going to knit this. I wonder what colours I'll use...? Thanks for sharing your talents again with us.
