A week or so ago a work colleague asked me to knit him a woollen hat for when he's out walking. Great! My DH doesn't go for much knitwear so it was lovely to have a different type of project.
I picked out some pattern and yarn selections, and he made his choice. He opted for the Jacques Cousteau hat which is a free pattern, thankfully with an English translation.
The chosen yarn was Rowan Felted Tweed DK in shade Ancient (172) - a lovely machine-washable merino, alpaca and viscose blend.
It was a quick and easy knit, but not too boring either. I used a 100cm long 3.5mm Addi Turbo circular needle for the lot with magic loop. A doddle!
