He's the coolest Dad around, and each year heads over East to the snow for a snowboarding adventure. I have knit him a beanie in the past (***) but it was a little short on his forehead, and though he wears it, it is an inside beanie, not a thrashing down the white slopes, keeping Dad's ears warm from the crisp frosty air kind of beanie.
So the race has been ON to finish the beanie before Dad flies out to the snow!
I'm basing the beanie on Jared Flood's excellent Turn A Square pattern, but with a couple of changes.
These shots are from last week and the good news is.. I've finished! FO project photos to come :)
