Handsome, yet serviceable*

First FO of the year, and it’s a belated present for my Dad. I didn’t have a pattern for this, of course. I cast on 80 stitches in the round on sz 7 needles, then did a repeat of (k5, p5) for maybe 9″. Then I either k2tog or p2tog every 5 stitches (depending on what section I was on), then every 4, then 3, and when I had (I think) 9 stitches left, I spread out three more decreases and closed it off.

I can’t remember what the yarn is… I will find out when I teach on Saturday!! It’s 100% baby alpaca, I know that.

*This is a joke… my Dad would totally say something like this to describe his hat.
