Turn a Square Beanie

August 17, 2011

I love Jared Flood’s patterns and so I added this men’s hat to my Christmas knitting.  I’ve made this for one of my nephews.  I love this little hat. The decreases at the top are really nice.

I used some Ecolana that I had left over from these fingerless mittens.  The yarn matched nicely with the brown Shepherd’s Wool.  Shepherd’s Wool is made right here in Michigan.  I love this wool – if you’ve never used it, it’s worth buying some.  It’s a worsted that incredible soft and knits up so nicely and comes in a lot of colors.

The hat was just a tad too large, so I picked up stitches and added a lining with the Shepherd’s Wool.  It made the hat fit perfectly and just made the hat a little nicer  and extra warm – linings are so nice.

Pattern:  Turn a Square
Yarn:  Ecolana Natural and Stonehedge Shepherd’s Wool in Brown
Needles:  US#7, circular
