Alaska Hiking Hat

Irish Walking Hat
Originally uploaded by Lomara.
This is the Irish Walking Hat in Lamb's Pride bulky in Turkish Olive. I used US8's and made a 2" brim (which I think I should have lengthened to 3"). It's a bit heavier because I'm giving it to my brother tomorrow. He lives in Palmer, Alaska, so I thought he should get something heavier than the average worsted weight hat. I almost made him a Monmouth cap, but I thought a squishy warm cable hat might suit him better. Hope it fits him!

ETA: He loved it and wouldn't take it off, even in the warmth of Los Angeles!
