FO: Windschief

This is a hat. Specifically, this is the Windschief hat by West Knits. I made this hat for my husband two weeks ago. Thankfully I took this picture of it before he got home. Why? Because I haven’t seen it since I gave it to him. Let me explain…

At the beginning of the month my husband made a request for two hats, one grey and one black. He wanted them short so there wasn’t a brim, fitted like another hat he had and preferably with a cable. I opted out of the cable because I kind of hate them. He also wanted to go to the yarn shop with me to pick out the yarn. He picked out Spud and Chloe Sweater in a lovely deep heathered grey and a black. Did I mention to you guys how particular he is? And since he never makes requests when he does I take them seriously.

So I settled on the Windschief because I’ve made it before and since he wasn’t getting a cable, I wanted the hat to have some interest and texture. I whipped it up on a weekend while he was playing golf, showed it to him and asked him to try it on before I blocked and then I never saw it again. He’s worn it every day since. And since he gets home before me by the time I get home to photograph him he’s stripped down from his cute work clothes. So this is all you will see of his hat and I’m not mad because at least I know he likes it and it’s serving its purpose. Maybe by the time I knit the black one I’ll get him to pose for some pics for me. Fingers crossed.
