It's a good thing we live in MN (and we NEED hats) because I finished this one a little past it's deadline. This was definitely a keep-me-on-my-toes knit, but still fun. The texture is so unique, it's a great men's hat pattern (and trust me, there aren't that many great ones out there!).
Pattern: Koolhaas by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed
Yarn: Lana Grossa Bingo Color 206
Modifications: None - but I did depend on the comments and tips on Ravelry concerning this project. The pattern was pretty sparce so it helped that some people wrote out the cable chart. I have knit 2 of Jared's hats this past year (Turn a Square was the other one) and I'm happy to say I will be attempting a third soon (Will likes hats as much as I do!)
