Alpaca Hat

I still have a so-so opinion of this hat, maybe thats because I haven't seen him wear it yet. I will reserve final judgement until I see what it looks like on. Probably the only reason I went ahead and gave him this one is because it matches the scarf I made him. And I even started another hat out of the same yarn, in case he dislikes this hat. I know I didn't get gauge, but I did the math to make it still fit, I just wasn't too fond of the shaping. It is super soft though and I do love the color. The stitch in the body of the hat comes pretty close to matching the pattern in the scarf, which was a totally easy pattern that made a nice, non-frilly scarf. Guy patterns can be hard to find sometimes. I will say this though, the hat did knit up very quickly.

Next up, a close up of the scarf.
