A few weeks ago I knit my husband gloves from the Viking Yarn he bought.
The gloves only used about half the skein, so I decided to make a hat out of the rest. I wasn’t sure how much yarn I had or how much I needed, so I made the hat top down, using the gloves as a swatch to base my stitch counts on.
Hubby loves his hat and I love him in it. Win-win .
