Knitting: Hat #2 for Lesotho

Here's another hat for Lesotho (see my previous post for more information about that). As you can tell, this one is a bit bigger than the last one. I figured they will have all kinds of head sizes, so they will need a few different sizes of hats.

This pattern is called Seaman's Cap and is available as a free download.

One very nice feature of this hat is the extra-long "brim" that's designed to be folded up for a double thickness, thus creating a very warm barrier around the ears.

I used the same black worsted-weight wool on this hat as the previous hat.

Stay tuned for more!
