  1. […] I have posted the pattern for my son’s hat as well as the knitted little girl’s dress up boa I spoke of last week. […]

  2. Nice! Men like a manly hat, and they’re hard to find.

  3. Firefly, would you mind awfully photgraphing the top of this lovely hat to show us what the crown should look like?

    Thanks in advance!

  4. Hey fellow Upstate NY’r —

    This is the EXACT thing I want to make next. My SO commented when I was making my felted bag that he wanted me to make a hat. I’m gonna link this on my blog — if that’s okay with you — and I’ll post pics when I finish — maybe Tom will even wear it for a photo op!

    Love your blog!

    Thanks –

  5. […] Lo and behold (I love blogging and bloggers) firefly responded to my bag post and on HER blog (which is great, BTW)  is this great “guy hat” with the pattern. […]

  6. […] have also included a shot of the scarf I am knitting for my son to match the hat I knit and gave him at Christmas. When it is complete I will share the pattern with […]

  7. Great hat – I love your site!

  8. Gorgeous hat! Curious if you wouldn’t mind sharing what all the abbreviations mean? I’m a VERY BEGINNER knitter & haven’t a clue but would love some help. I really want to try to tackle this hat for someone I love very much. Thanks!

  9. I’d love to knit this for my son-in-law — it’s the perfect pattern for him!. I have a ball of worsted weight wool, 85 gms, 197 yds. Will this be enough? It isn’t quite as much as the two balls of Suri Merino which you used. Thanks!

  10. […] New York: A Guy’s Wool Hat by firefly Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted in sable Needles: bamboo size 5 circ. […]

  11. I wanted to let you know that I just completed this hat for my boyfriend! It is perfect! Thank you so much for taking the time to create and publish this pattern! It’s perfect!

  12. Question – if I wanted to make this hat larger (My dad’s head is about 25-26 inches around) – how many stitches should I add, and should I increase needle size for worsted weight yarn?


  13. I just finished the hat and it’s HUGE! It’s for a giant!! Not sure what made it turn out like this as I’m a new knitter… But it is BIG and BEAUTIFUL. Thanks

  14. I loved this pattern! I am a beginner, and it turned out perfectly. I used a 80% acrylic, and 20% wool, as I wanted it to survive my son’s washing and drying it in his machines. But, I would wear this hat myself. Thank you so much. Aren’t son’s grand?


  15. I have knit this hat for my son, twice. The first time I was wrapping the yarn in the wrong direction while knitting or purling so the hat came out too tight. The second time it came out perfect and is now his favorite. Thank you

  16. Hi,

    I have knitted this pattern, and now need to decrease. But I don’t understand the abbreviations! Can you please help.



  17. I made this hat twice and will make it a third time for my husband.
