Easy Head Hugger by Danny Oullette

From the Men Who Knit Scarf exchange , my Partner was kind to gift me with enough yarn to make a Hat if I wanted to. I grabbed Danny Oulette Easy Head Hugger. It would be best to have this pattern in a solid color, but you can actually appreciate the subtle chevrons on the bottom of the hat with the malabrigo. It is a short row hat with the option of making it in DPNS. Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, the chevrons add depth and interest to the Malabrigo. This is a beautifully composed photo.

I agree with Albert. Lovely and subtle. And a great photo. That Malabrigo is sure pushing at my resolution not to get any more stash for the time being. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I love seeing guys doing Danny's patterns. He was at the first Men's Spring Knitting Retreat last year with his partner (who also knits) and they are the sweetest guys.

Here's Danny's pattern site if anyone's interested:

Andy, that is a great hat!! I am glad that you used the yarn. I ended up buying some more of that particular color and I am working on a striped head hugger hat for myself. I will let you know how that turns out.

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog I think it should come out very nice, specially with a golderod or plain bright yellow! Thank You!
