Not your typical hellcat biker chic and
Li'l Deb would say "that's not a bad thing!"

The Ships Project: Off Duty Roll Brim Hat, Charcoal

Knit Roll Brim Hat by Kathleen Sams
Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes

Off Duty Roll Brim Hat, Charcoal

The Crown

This hat is for The Ships Project.  I knit a little on it in three evenings. I knit it in luxury yarn because the wearers earned luxury yarn, the hat is quite plain, and I prefer luxury fibers.  I’ll attach a tag with yarn and care info.
  • I wear hats in small and this was snug before blocking. After blocking it is very comfortable.
  • I did my best to minimize the openness at the crown but I can tug only so much with dbl pointed needles.
  • I added a few extra rows to protect against blended sea winds.
  • Clean stitch definition.
  • Soft. Warm. Love the color, Charcoal. Charcoal has a bit of halo/fluff but my roll brim hat in Lagoon did not. 

...Happy Trails....
