A friend of mine loves acrylic yarn hats. I only make hats for him as it is a fun venue and I get to play with different synthetic yarns, specifically acrylics. I make hats for him and he does appreciates them a lot. This pattern is my own, "Daniel" it is brought up to 152 sts on worsted weight Paton's Canadiana.
This is the second Old Forge that I make, and it is as much fun as the first one. It is a great pattern and blocks easy. It is about 64 inches blocked.
I began this hat with Malabrigo Arroyo the one in natural color and then I
made one with Knit Picks Gloss in brown. Both hats were less than 50 grams of
yarn and knits up very quickly. The hat can be a plain hat, a slouch
or even a tam if you block it in that manner. Blocking is what makes this hat be the hat you wwant.
