Okay, let's get past the eyes. Here's the Manos hat I made. It didn't take very long. It's made from Manos Wool Classica Naturals color number 704 Red.
The pictures make it look like there are shades of brown in it, but it's just a deeper burgundy.
Manos del Uruguay is a pure wool kettle dyed yarn. I would say it's a chunky yarn. One skein at 126 meters did the hat.
We have the yarn in several colors at $19.00.
I used a free pattern from the Manos site. It's the Affinity Hat.
But the most important thing, is that it was fun.
The hat looks better in person than in these pictures. Does that sound like bragging?
I guess the fact that I'm posting this is bragging.
