Dense Ridged Nut Hat

Yarn: Lion Brand: Chunky Wool-Ease (Acrylic 80%, Wool 20% – washable)
Colors: Walnut, Charcoal, and Natural
Hook: I (5.5 mm)

My own design. Which means I tore it out several times before I had the right hook and number of stitches. That’s the way it goes.

I wanted to make a hat that was very dense and warm. I find that most people I know don’t put a hat on unless it’s really cold, and at that point a light weight hat is pointless. Especcially men. This hat is great for the men-folk.

Another thing I tackled here was starting the ridges right up at the top. Last year I did a ridged hat, but the ridges didn’t begin until I was done with the crown. Here I was able to work out the numbers and start the ridges in the second, third and fourth rows. I think it looks great.
