I've been knitting these for a few days, the pattern is dead easy and they are great for using up oddments of wool. I've been using a mohair and an eyelash wool knitted together, theyImage Enlarger knit up in a couple of hours, so getting at least one done per evening. you can either roll up the edge to make a cuff or leave it down to cover the lugs.

Great looking hat Janet, love the colours & the texture, great for this weather too. Are you selling them on your stalls? I should imagine they would get snapped up.

Keep safe & warm.....big_hug

I knitted a beanie too but it took me a little longer

I think yours definitely looks quicker to knit up but I guess wouldn't have looked so good on hubby whistle

I'm going to try it with plain wool rather than fancy, I knit some at christmas for presents, but it was a different pattern and had some cableing in it.
