It was a last-minute inspiration, but five days before Christmas I decided to make “His” & “Her” Dog-walking hats for my son and his girlfriend. After a conversation with someone in the locker room at the gym, I decided that a polar fleece lining would make the hats really cozy, for those 5:00 a.m. treks into the back yard with Penny Lane, their basset hound. This is Rachel’s hat, ready for a quick photo shoot before wrapping, well before midnight on Christmas Eve. Alex’s is of the same handspun, hand-dyed, fair trade Uraguayan yarn, but in a brown-to-black colorway. He whisked his out of here before I had a chance to document it. I modified the pattern a bit, but recommend this project for ease and speed.
