I suppose it could be worse. I could have bought some sort of lovely gingham or calico print and had our whole family made up a set of "we belong together" clothes... collared shirts for the guys and a pinafore for the girlie and a full skirt with a cute little handkerchief for my head or something. So I didn't go that far. I just made several hats that all look very much the same. Same color, same style, same samey sameness.
And the photographs seemed to want to go the same route.
Anyway, it's a fun and easy pattern and I wear mine all the time because it's so nice and toasty, even if slightly itchy (and in fact, it is a little different, with a "seed stitch" for the crown portion instead of the regular stockinette. Gettin' crazy).
I used Wool of the Andes in Mink/Heather by Knit Picks for Scout and I and
a Lion Brand Alpine Wool in Bay Leaf Tweed for the Man.
No specific pattern, just rib stitch to desired thickness and then stockinette all the way home!
And currently, something red is in the works...
