Well, in this case, the knitter's husband had no hats. The other night, Mike, not so subtlely, reminded me that he had chosen yarn for two hats while we were in Minnesota. Being that it is January, in Chicago, he was really going to need some follow-through on my part, or he was going to have to buy a new hat. From a store.
Oh, the shame of it. My husband, wearing a machine-knit hat. What would people think? ...I couldn't allow it.
I grabbed the worsted tweed from the cubby. Mike selected a relatively simple cabled beanie. And, I set to work immediately.
By the following morning, a hat.
It's a warm hat. It fits him well. He says he likes it. I think he looks cute in it.
I do like a man in wool.
Pattern: Men's Ski Hat by Irina Dmitrieva

Ha! My similarly hatless husband did look at me sideways when I knitted his brother-in-law a hat for Christmas, then had him model it for me. Glad you fixed your oversight, it does look great on him, Guess it's time to get on board!

Really great hat, have added it to my list as I've a son who's crazy about beanies.

Thank goodness you made him this hat. Store bought? I shudder to think of it. He looks really handsome in it and it looks like it fits perfectly!

My husband has no knit hats either. I was going to make him one once and I just never got around to it. I'm not that upset about it, to be honest. Where we live now, we no longer have a real need for warm hats...however, when/if we visit home (Wisconsin) in the winter, we'll need them. So, I have a couple on hand :)

Great hat for your husband, it looks great on him and seems like it will do the job in a cold Chicago winter. I've added the pattern to my queue, my husband likes when I make him hats, even though I think he lost a cabled beanie made with Koigu, I may not forgive him for that...

He looks gorgeous in it! Wait, is that too much? LOL. The hat is perfect! Must look at that pattern myself.

Gosh, that hat is fabulous and it fits him perfectly! I'm so much in love with the yarn you chose.

At first glance I thought it was a picture of Bradley Cooper! The hat looks very good on him.
