This is not a new hat for me to knit, I've done a couple of winter versions, but I decided to try and knit a summer version. Instead of using wool or acrylic, this has been knit in lovely soft, baby DK cotton. The thinking is, it will be cooler and more breathable over the warmer weather.
The knitting of this hat kept me busy whilst watching the Wimbledon final on Sunday. I got the main body of the hat knitted and sewn up before the end of the match. The peak was finished that evening. The cutting of the peak and sewing up was completed yesterday.
