Manly Slip

Serge664's picture

The move from indy to dallas has changed my "cool guy shag" into something closer to a "homeless guy fro."Manly Hat

I could get a haircut, but i think it is just the excuse i need to make more hats.

I just made the "Manly Slip-Stitched Hat" from the book Just Hats.

 

I used 2 strands of wool ease instead of kool wool (it is what I had around)

I think it turned out pretty well. I am very pleased with the rows of V's and _'s.

shave your head!  :-) 

shave your head!  :-)  That was finally my solution for my locks.  Great hat, by the way.  Is that a good book?  Say, I love the Serge Gainsbourg song on your home page.  Haven't heard him for a lonnnng time.

it's a pretty good book.

it's a pretty good book. It's both knit and crochet and published by lion brand, so it is not hard to find the yarns.

Not many mens patterns, but the ones it has are pretty good.

it also has several charts for making patternless hats based on gauge swatches.

(I've tried shaving my head, and plan to start shaving again once it stops growing or thins out)

Impressive hat! My hair is

Impressive hat! My hair is too... much to wear them.

I really dig it! The pattern has alot more visual action than plain striping.

Good job!

As for a hair cut, my hair has grown so long I'm waitng a few more weeks then donating my hair to 'Locks for Love'. A charity that makes wigs for child who have lost their hair due to cancer.
