Nothing screams summer quite like a wool hat.
The pattern is Bayard from Brooklyn Tweed. First time using Loft yarn. I like the way it knitted up, but wouldn't say I'm a big fan of the yarn in general. The dark brown especially was very wispy and pulled apart easily. That's frustrating to someone who likes to pull their stitches tight so they don't have ladders! I like the pattern though, and have lots of other yarns I can make more hats with.
Have you entered my giveaway yet? You could be the proud owner of a hand knit hat.
Of course, you're not expected to wear it on 104 degree days!
