Hygge This Hat

Hello everyone! How’s your Tuesday going? I’m over here trying to keep my fingers warm while I try to type (or crochet too). It’s so weird that I’m freezing and it’s on the 60s whereas when I lived in New York this would be short sleeve weather during the winter. Humans are so weird, ya know?
Anyway, that’s my set up for this week’s pattern, it’s cold and I wanted to make a hat. Actually I designed this for a hike because it was freezing (much colder than I am today) when we went on a hike up to the second largest peak on San Diego and so I wanted a hat for the hike (keep all that body heat in). Well, I took it off about 10 minutes into the hike because as soon as the sun came out I was cookin’. All the best laid plans, ya know? But it wasn’t an entire loss, I have been wearing this hat all over the place because I love how soft it is! I made my first version in the Hygge yarn from Red Heart and it’s just impossibly comfortable that I even wear it in the house when my head is cold (like it is now). I made a second in Vanna’s Choice because I felt like the Hygge wasn’t showcasing the adorable little puffs as well as it could have. So instead of one pattern with 2 sizes, you get 2 weights with 2 sizes. Who’s the real winner? All of us.
This hat is super easy though, just gotta to make sure you count and do your gauge swatch. If you have problems with hats turning out too big or too small, you should do a gauge swatch before you start. For real, even if you are using the same hook and yarn combo, your  tension might be entirely different from mine. Ok, I’m done with my little rant. I just hate seeing people put in hours on a design only to have it come out the wrong size. Ya know? We’ve all been there.
So, yeah, I hope you love this fun little hat design you can probably knock out in a day (at most, I made the Vanna’s in like 6 hours with amble breaks). And fun fact, I named this after one of the women that runs Hike for Beer San Diego, because her hikes inspired me to make it (spouse & I go hiking with them on occasion). Yes, I’m such a nerd.
