As I was finishing up Paisley’s cardigan (it’s on the blocking board now), I was thinking about getting all the presents together, and I realized, I forgot one! For Paisley’s boyfriend, Cameron.
He’s a nice young man, who’s been around for about a year now, so I think that’s deserving of a present. So as soon as her cardigan was blocking, I cast on for a hat.
The pattern is Two by Two – I figured it was nice and simple and good for a teen. The yarn is the leftover Cascade 220 Wave from Ray’s socks. You can just see a bit of the colour shift in the picture.
I am playing a bit of yarn chicken here, I’m not sure exactly how much yardage was left after the socks were done. But it looks like enough. Here’s hoping!

Hats always make great gifts. Hand knit ones are so much better than anything you can buy.
this will make a great gift–nice yarn, too! (and nice of you to include him!)
What a nice thing to do! The color is great for a teen and I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. Good luck with the yarn chicken. I played it last night with the blanket and won! I had about 18 inches left after the last round was done.
He is going to be so touched you have made him a hat. Good luck with the finish. Stay safe.
What perfect yarn for a guy hat. So nice of you to include the boyfriend in gift knitting. Hope you win at yarn chicken!
Good luck with the yarn chicken part! That is so nerve-wracking. Lucky guy to get a handmade hat and the lucky gal who gets that beautiful sweater!
Oh perfect color !
