273 Basic Hat and Mitten set for Men WEB EXCLUSIVE
Soucy: "Simple hemmed hat or earflap hat for men, with sturdy mittens. Uses heavy worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 18 sts to 4 inches. You can substitute 1 x 1 ribbing for the hem with no change in stitch count. The only sewing is on the hemmed hat." Here Soucy nails just about all possible male accessory requirements. She gives them a dense, warm fabric and unfussy styling. These would be at home worn anywhere in the world by any man, and the onlooker would think, "there's a stand-up, good guy you can count on." The only non-circular part is the earflaps.
