    The Jacques Cousteau hat reminds me of my favourite knitted hat, lost in the snow a couple of years back. I purchased it in a post office/cafe / petrol station near Dingle (deepest darkest Ireland) and it was brilliant. Real wool so warm and near on waterproof and sadly missed. Could I ask if you accept commission work? 😉

    You have a wonderful man there. I believe he does deserve the new hat – mainly for the stunning alcohol colourwork.

    I know a couple of men who would love a hat like that so I may just go and get that pattern . Christmas is a coming and hats would solve a problem or two.

    A friend on rav has just knitted this hat in the same grey – isn’t it a great manly hat? Methinks Ben deserves it, and he’s lucky to have such a proficient provider of hats on hand. On Blacker Designs – recently I have to admit to splurging in a big way on their website – luckily on half price yarns, it is indeed gorgeous stuff and in those delicious natural colours – yum. They had some more yarns on offer recently…may just have to go and have another look….

    I love the pattern, it’s quite different. Just make sure that this one doesn’t get lost, perhaps it should only be allowed out for special occasions.

    Yes, you did irritate me a bit. Not as much as some pure wool does though! Sadly, some of us genuinely do have to be a bit careful about what wool we wear where. And some of us also have to be a bit careful about how much we spend on our hobby – if it’s a choice between not knitting, and knitting with acrylic, I know which way I’m going.

    Still it’s your blog, and I don’t have to read it, do I now? :o)

    Threaten him with some sort of child-proof fixings (like elastic on mittens) if he doesn’t take good care of this one!

    Love this hat! And would so much appreciate having the pattern to make the hat for my son, grandson, and husband. Tried Ravelry which sent me to Word Press,
    signed up for Word Press but am having no luck. Please tell me how I can get this
    handsome pattern. Many thanks.
