So this is the hat I just knit up for my boyfriend (ain't he cute? Tongue) with yarn I bought while I was in France. He says he likes it, but I think it looks kind of old lady-ish. I can't really decide if I like it on him or not. I have lots of extra yarn, so technically I can make him a matching scarf, but... Well, you guys tell me- what do you think about it?

The pattern is from Debbie Stoller's new Stitch 'n Bitch for guys. One of the only hats in it, and since I heart the hats, I had to do it.

Thanks for looking!

(...wow, I just noticed that he matches the couch... hehe)

I don't think that it is old ladyish... he is too masculine to be an old lady lol. I like the stripes and colors!

I've never seen an old lady wearing a hat like that.  I say complete the set and make a scarf.

Nice yarn by the way.

I love the hat, I think it looks great on him.  My son would wear it.  I'm not sure if I would make a matching scarf though, maybe a plain color that is in the hat?  Make yourself a scarf with the extra yarn, I would wear it!

I like the hat.  I don't know about a matching scarf, though---that might be too much.  Make something for yourself, then he can match you.  Boyfriends are the best accessories.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Very nice!  It looks like a guy's hat.

I agree with ChrisM318 and raditionbaby: he gets a plain color scarf, and you get a scarf with the rest of this yarn

Then he'll have a co-ordinating scarf (in a plain color), and it will look like you stole his scarf (the one that matches the hat)!  Wink
