I finished making 2 more hats for a total of 5 hats for a cancer hat drive. They will be going to a hospital in Maine. I was told that they were usually low on hats for men, so I used the Man Hat pattern by Haven Leavitt to make them. I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn for all of the hats. It is a very soft and warm yarn. The bonus was that I was able to buy it on sale. Then I went back to the craft store and bought several more skeins of it, still on sale, to make Christmas presents (more hats). I found that 6" for the base of the pattern is better than 7". Seven inches was a little to long, and only good if the person has a lot of hair or likes a bigger on top hat. I also used size 10 needles to make them. The nice thing about this pattern is that it fits my 6 year old, my husband, and myself. So different sized heads can wear the same hat. I love the different colorways and self striping of this yarn. Below are the 2 hats that I made this week. It can take as little as a day to make 1 hat.
