A couple of hats and a free pattern!!
Mister J lost his hat!!!! Yes the cabled one I made him out of the yarn we bought in Paris!!!! Shock horror!!! Well he decided he needed a new one!!
So in all it’s plain chunky goodness introducing the Mr hat
And not to be outdone and because my luscious handspun yarn came up chunky…. The Mrs hat
So for the pattern….
You will need:
5mm circular needle on a short cable and 5mm dpns
A couple of balls of chunky handspun 100 gms of so…. Or a couple of balls of Sirdar Click Chunky….. ( for the MR if he is likely to lose it!!!)
Cast on 92 st place marker and join to work in the round

Repeat row 1 for about 7cm
Change to stocking stitch and knit until the piece measures 17/18 cms for him, I did mine about 20cm plus as I have long hair that is often tied up and I like a slouchy hat to cover my ears for walking the puppy!
