This Year's Boyfriend Hat

My boyfriend helps me with my knitting photoshoots. He models or holds the knitting or takes the pictures... in public, without complaining. He's a keeper! And he deserves another hat. This year, he wanted a larger hat. He said his last hat is too short when he's outside in the winter cold shoveling or hiking for hours, so I re-knit The Boyfriend Hat, adding an extra inch to the height to cover his ears.

Pattern: A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend
Mods: Added that extra inch
Yarn: Mission Falls Wool color 021
Needles: 5mm (size 8) 16" circs and dpns

Someone on Ravelry pointed out that there are over 100 boyfriend hats in the world. Yippee! I'm glad you like the pattern as much as my boyfriend does.
