There is an old tale in knitting that says you are not allowed to knit a sweater for a man until you are married to him. This has carried over into a number of aspects of knitting including a book called Never Knit Your Man a Sweater (Unless You’ve Got the Ring). It’s a fantastic book for men’s knits!
With all of that being said, I’ve never knit for Aaron, until now!
A few weeks ago when I was making hats for my dad, Aaron asked where his hat was. So when we left for our mini-honeymoon I took some extra yarn I had from my dad’s hats and made a hat for Aaron. His FIRST knit gift!
This was knit out of some Paton’s Lace held doubled and it is the Turn a Square Pattern. I used US 4 and 6 needles for it.
His hat was finished just in time for the first snow in Northwest Indiana. Don’t worry the weather soon shot back up to 70 degrees! Now if only it would stay that way for the next few months! 🙂
