Doesn't every man need a shrine to The Incredibles in his office?
The man in his hat
How I made the man's hat
My man has a big head (24"), and he likes those ribbed watchman style caps that hug the head. I used a free Bernat pattern. It's probably still available on their website. The hat is knit flat in mostly K2 P2 ribbing, with a bit of shaping up at the top and then sewn down the one seam.
I made this hat for him in Bernat DenimStyle a few years ago, and it was his favorite, but it has gone ratty and pilly since. The new hat is made with elann.com's Super Tweed.
Yarn: Nearly two balls of Super Tweed (Nutmeg)
Needles: 5 1/2mm
Gauge: 16 st = 4"
I cast on 82 stitches and worked in K2P2 for 10 1/2" before the last bit of shaping. He gets about 2" of cuff to turn up. This hat stretches a lot and would fit heads from 22" to 24"
It even fit my 21" head, but I had to turn up about five" (fatter head = less cuff).
I really enjoyed knitting with the Super Tweed. It is very comfy on the hands, soft like a ragg wool. The cotton/wool/acrylic mix makes for a comfortable, warm and non-itchy hat. The little bit of elastic will help it hold its shape.
