yes! i finished the boyfriend-hat! it seems silly to make a hat, when winter is almost over and spring is already peeking... but we just spent our winter vacation in switzerland, and only a week before we left, we both realised: boyfriend doesn't have a hat! i had to reknit it twice, because of sizing issues. (my mistake) but i managed to finish it... in the car on our way to switzerland!
as you can see, it fits, but it's a bit too long in his neck. the pattern (thorpe hat) required some extra rows on this part of the hat, so it's easy to skip these next time i make this hat. (boyfriend likes it so much he wants another one, in black!)
 
 
the yarn is 100% merino wool and it is super soft. i also love the colours, and the tassels! i might add a pom-pom... but i'm not sure yet. what do you think?

  3. heel mooi! met een pomponnetje wordt de muts misschien een beetje te 'meisjesachtig'? Ik zou 'm zo laten!

  5. Oh, this hat is gorgeous! I don't know how it's looking over there, but here it just started snowing again last night. So there's still a chance the hat might even be worn long after your Switzerland trip!
