New Sheep(ish) Pattern: My Guy Hat

My Guy Hat
Shown in colors: Grey(ish), Gun Metal(ish) and Red(ish)
My Guy Hat
Slouchy Beanie
When designing for guys, I always say simple is best. That’s why I love plain ol’ beanies. They’re a great way for a dude to show a little style without really having to commit to anything crazy. If you go with a stockinette look, I can pretty much guarantee that your man will wear it. Use color and stripe placement to add or subtract his chosen level of funk. The My Guy hat is designed to be a bit longer than average to cover the ears and slouch a bit (a big trend right now), and includes spiral decreases at the crown for an added effect. Make this project now, or bookmark it for this year’s holiday gift ideas!
