FO: Gramps Slouch

I saw a version of this hat knitted up on the French Press Knits blog and immediately wanted to cast on. It has been a while since I knitted anything with cables so this pattern was a fun and quick way to get in some practice. The hat will be donated to a great cause. With a little bit of flattery, I convinced my husband to model for me. Excuse the dark pictures since they were taken in the man-cave which has zero natural light (bad for TV viewing and video game playing, so I am told). After a couple of dozen attempts consisting of goofy male model poses, I was finally able to capture a few decent pictures.




Doesn't he look thrilled to be wearing a hand knit? Hope this doesn't make him remember the socks that I had promised to knit him a while back and never got around to starting.


Lots of great projects can be found on FO Friday with TAMI'S AMIS. Go check them out!

  1. love cabled hats--and this one looks like it was a fun knit. I might have to add it to the queue!
    What a good sport of a model you have--I rarely can get beyond the goofy man-pictures when my hubby poses in knits for me!

  4. The hat looks great! Tell your husband his modeling "made" the hat. Maybe that will keep him modeling your handknits for us!

  9. Love the hat and yay for husbands that are willing to model - I find it hard enough to get the kids to model for me, and my husband would be more likely to let me cut his leg off with a rusty saw! :)

    Have a lovely weekend
