very similar hats

The Boardwalk hat (free pattern here) and the Giftie Slouchie Beanie (free pattern here) look so similar!  I finished knitting the Boardwalk hat today (with KnitPicks Comfy Worsted in Rosehip):

boardwalk1And look at it compared to the Giftie Slouchie Beanie I made my Dad for Christmas:

gsb2The second uses chunkier yarn and bigger needles, but the pattern is almost exactly the same.  It’s nice to have such similar patterns available so that I can just adapt to whatever yarn I happen to have in my stash!  Both hats are incredibly stretchy and easily fit a man-sized head.

The KnitPicks Comfy Worsted deserves some praise here — it is SO SOFT.  It’s 75% Pima cotton, 25% acrylic, and I want to order lots lots lots more of this as a cheap to medium priced yarn that is good for just about anything!  The Rosehip shade is enchanting because in different lights it appears as different hues — in dim indoor lighting it looks pretty orange but in natural light it’s a lovely pink!

It’s been a lot of knitting lately, but that’s just the mood I’ve been in I suppose.  Well, I guess that’s all for now!  I hope you’re all staying safe and cozy and happy!

  3. They are very similar. I love the pink one. It looks so soft and feminine while the chunky on looks great for the guys. I printed the pattern 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
