My boyfriend is a firefighter. He likes to wear a beanie cap (as he calls them) to keep his head warm at work on cold winter days. He has a navy blue Dallas Cowboys hat that he wears a lot. Of course it has a star. The Cowboys star is not a fire-department approved logo. He's been told not to wear that cap. But the fire department does not provide a hat. So I told him I'd make him one. I did!
The pattern is called Cambridge Watchcap. It's really simple to make. And it looks pretty good.
OK, yeah, I did start this project during the winter. I finished it over Memorial Day weekend. Not exactly the time of year one needs a knit cap in Houston. At least it's ready for the first cold weather of 2013 in, oh, maybe November.
He looks kind of grumpy here. I interrupted his viewing of Trouble with the Curve for the photoshoot.
