Hey everyone.  I made this hat for my dad's birthday.  It's my first design.  Smiley  It ended up being kind of big but I still think it looks okay.  I couldn't felt it smaller since it's superwash wool.

Thank you so much for your post and your pattern. My husband loses his 'old man hat' once a year and now I'm going to make him one right away! His head is huge so I'm sure I'll love your pattern! Grin

That's a really nice hat.   Thanks for posting the pattern.  I may have to try making one of those for my husband for his birthday.  Of the gazillion hats he owns, I think he only has 1 or 2 of this style.  Seriously, you should see the top of our coat closet.  Crammed halfway to the ceiling with hats.  Only one of which is mine. 

But enough rambling.  Great hat.  It looks cute on you, too. Smiley

thanks all of you!  Cheesy

Just to clarify for those who want to make it - the circumference of the hat was several inches bigger than the 23" I wanted it to be (which was the size of another jeff cap my dad has).  I fixed this by using elastic for the band, and gathering the extra in while I sewed it on.  If you want to make a smaller hat, I would recommend maybe making the pieces shorter so you won't end up with all that extra space.  If you want to make a bigger hat, just use a longer piece of elastic for the band.  I hope that makes sense.

but it looks so good on YOU -- i hope your dad lets you borrow it back sometimes.  or maybe you need to have father-daughter matching hats?
