In this post I am sharing 12 photos of a camouflage stripes hand-knit men’s basic beanie that I just finished today.
I recently mentioned on my blog that I am planning to revive my hat shop on Etsy, and start selling my hand-knit and crocheted hats. I have been making and selling them off an on since 1999. Well my latest break from it is over, and I am ready to get back in the game.
I fell in love with making hats in 1999, shortly after getting out of the Army. Crocheting and knitting was something I loved doing as a child, and these creations have been something that has been a passion of mine for many years in my adult life.
The hat you see below is not for sale currently. It was one I started making for a family member quite a few years ago that got put away and forgotten about when my life focus veered off to other projects (I’m constantly busy with something). Well when I most recently decided to revive my hat shop again, I realized I had to finish this hat in order to get my double pointed knitting needles to finish another hat I’m currently working on. So here it is…
You’ll notice the hat has a slightly slouchy fit. This is because I make them to fit the way I love to wear them. The same way that I don’t like wearing tight fit clothes, I don’t like my beanies too tight on my head. So I knit these so they fit comfortably and with a little bit of slouch at the top. Not only does the style look great, but it ensures a great fit for everyone since these are made as “one size fits all”.
I hope you like the hat and the photos, and please follow my website for updates on the newest hats I’ll be posting and selling. Note: sales of my hats (when I have some available) will be within and to United States residents only. I hate dealing with foreign customs and refuse to do that again this time around. Thanks for checking out my blog post.
