This Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat lives up to it’s title. With front post stitches for insulation, my brother loves how fast this hat warms his head.
I crocheted the Boy Beanie v2.0 for him, also using Red Heart Super Saver in paddy green, but it turned out too tight. I was thinking of trying out the Husband Hat for him, but he requested a Cable Hat, like my gray one.
I really enjoy the Cable Hat pattern, but after making that hat several times over to get the right size, I had no desire to make another for a while. The Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat pattern seemed like a good compromise.
This hat is my first with a brim and it looks very bulky in the picture. When worn on an actual head instead of a yarn ball, the brim stretches out a bit more.
In other news, I’m working on a new set of photos for the Through Any Window Baby Blanket tutorial. Three rows were out of pattern order, so I’m re-photographing them. The actual directions are correct, but just remember the color order is jumbled. Also, I’m planning a new tutorial for a neat little crochet technique I came across on YouTube.

One in nine US adults have chronic kidney disease.
