Jesse's Boy

I could not help the name of this hat. The pattern is called Jesse's Christmas Hat. The name Jesse always reminds me of the song, Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield. Since the hat was knit with a guy in mind, I changed it to Jesse's Boy. This hat, like the Who's Claudia, has that prefect mix of cables and ribbing. It was fun to knit and would look great on a anyone. Yup. Another great pattern.

I didn't love the yarn so much. It was called Barley and although it was a brand I have used tons of times, this yarn was more "rustic" in that it had small threads of a different type of yarn that would shed quite a bit. I don't think I'll buy it again even though I love the color.
