Hat Finished

Cast this Man Needs a Hat  pattern on right before dinner and finished it before going to bed.

Photos aren’t great – the camera was fogging up due to the humidity outside again.  I knit this all on the larger size needles  rather than making the ribbing a needle sized down – it would have been too tight.  I also added one extra 8 row repeat before starting the crown decreases but I don’t think it will totally cover the ears.  In looking at finished project photos it appears that is the style of this hat – the bottom of the ears stick out – but I’ll think about this project for a while and decide if I want to rip it back to the start of the decreases and add more length to it first.
