I made these for myself. One is just pretty and the other is for when its real cold out.
This one is made with Soy Wool Stripes and is based on this pattern. I didn't follow it exactly.
This one is for when its really cold out. I found that none of the hats I've knit for myself are very warm. This yarn is a heavier worsted weight in wool and the brim makes it warmer that a beanie style hat. It is sooo warm I don't feel anything even when its windy. Always nice to have when walking the dog at night. I used this pattern and moda dea Vision, its 65% wool-35% acrylic. Its nice and soft.
