Carlos was introduced to me by Colin, who knew he'd love a warm winter hat just as the weather started to turn cold down in Argentina! Claiming bad fashion sense, Carlos left me to pick out a hat pattern and color for him - a very daunting task! I decided to go with a classic Joe Hat in brown wool - perfect to match with almost everything in Carlos' wardrobe and just in time for the freezing temps to set in! I knit the Joe hat according to pattern, leaving 1" off the length before decreasing. This gives the hat proper length without having a fold-over brim, a look I've grown super fond of. You can see a few more pictures of Carlos modeling his hat over on my Ravelry page.
