I finished my third Koolhaas Hat.
It’s purple. It was supposed to be for me. But I used much smaller needles so I ended up with a child-sized version.
I still love it, of course! But the intended recipient has changed. My son is 7 and the hat just about fits on his head. He was surprisingly cooperative during this short photoshoot.
My son loved the hat and has asked me to knit him a green one. In Socks That Rock. Would the lightweight be okay for this? Or is it too thin? I guess we’ll see when I cast on. This hat is dry and ready to be wrapped up for a Christmas present.
