Hello craftsters!  So, here is my fourth completed Christmas present.  My brother is a man's man, studying to become a millwright and very proud of his appearance.  He's basically the hardest person to craft for.  The only handmade present I've ever given him that he enjoyed was a quilt my sister and I made him for Chrismas last year.  He's an outdoorsy guy, into snowmobiling and snowboarding and all of that, so I decided to make him something he would actually wear that would keep the frostbite off his ears.


This is what you get, being raised in the Great White North.



I lined it in black fleece, so it's very warm.



It's got braids!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

 Cheesy Thanks!  I found the pattern online here http://people.uleth.ca/~hodd/Knitting/ChulloPattern.htm
It wasn't hard to make at all!  If you can knit in the round, you can make this hat without any problems.  If you don't know how to knit in the round, use this as an excuse to learn!

Don't worry, it's just a plastic boob.

great job! i actually just crocheted a chullo for my boyfriend and i wanted to line it in fleece (to protect him from the cheap acrylic yarn i used).  how did you go about doing that?  if you could offer any tips, i'd greatly appreciate it. thanks!

I kind of eyeballed a pattern, folding the hat in half and marking the top of the hat and the bottom and widest parts of the earflaps.  Since on mine, the earflaps were about a fifth of the circumferance of the hat, I made five kind of petal shapes (two of which were long, for the earflaps) and sewed them together hat-style.  I then sewed the edges, right side together, and turned it inside out.  I'm not sure if it was the best method to do it, I think maybe turning the edge of the lining under and sewing it to the hat, then doing a crocheted edging may have turned out better.  You could try and let me know what works best.

Did you post the hat yet? I'd like to see it!
