I never thought I'd find it, the perfect hat!  After many tries and tweeks here is Hawkeye.  I am totally in love with it, and it seems to look good on anyone; I'm thrilled!  I need to make myself a summer version, ASAP!


My hat (above) is the Medium size, knit with Cestari 2-Ply Wool in "Blackberry."  I love the tweediness of this yarn.  It's a very natural yarn which supposedly still contains the natural lanolin oils in the wool.  It's a little rough and stiff feeling, compared to other wools I've used (plus there are still bits of hay in it), but a wash in Kookaburra softened it up some!  I still love the color and my hat looks great so it outweighs any gripes about the yarn Wink

Here is my husband wearing the Large size, it's knit with Cascade 220 superwash (Love this yarn) and it's very soft but a little less structured than the Cestari version.  I think it looks fantastic on him  Kiss

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Hehe, thanks!  My hair color seems to change quite often, but I always seem to go back to blonde!

Oooh, what yarn did you decide to use?

Let me know if you need any help with the short rows or anything.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Very cute.  The tittle caught my attention.  When I was little I loved the tv version of M*A*S*H.
