Sometimes, you just want a hat that is warm, comfortable and fun. I bought three skeins of GGH Aspen, a lovely merino blend, for a steal, and a hat seemed like the best use for it. I walk my dog early every morning, and I can pop this hat on and barely feel the chill. I like this hat knit a little loose, to avoid hat head and ensure comfort. If the yarn were a finer gauge, I’d make it more snug, but with something this chunky, loose seems to be best.
