This guy turned up at our inner city meeting of the NSW Knitters Guild a few months back with an old hat he had bought in europe – cant remember if it was spain or greece now. Anyway he wanted another 2 the same.
Somehow I was volunteered to make them.
Which at the time was ok cause I was about to be unemployed for a while. But as is so that was not meant to be and 3 months later I have just posted the hats to him.
It was hard to get the gauge and ply right but once I had done that it was quite easy to knit each of them up – a many few hours in the airport helps.
The original was very well loved I hope the new ones are as well
