A Quick Knit

My FIL requested a new hat for this upcoming winter. His Irish Hiking Hat ended up accidentally in storage until his condo is re-built next year (due to a fire this past father's day).

I picked up some Bernat Softee Chunky, in True Grey, since it's washable in the machine. I went with chunky so it would be a quick knit. I love chunky. I've been on a chunky kick lately. With the chunky yarn, I decided to go with the Chucko Hat by Courtney Buckalew-Kramer.

I used 112 g (so just over 1 skein) and knit it up on US 10/6.0 mm needles. I really like the way it came out. It's super cozy. I hope he likes it!
