waiting for winter

I told myself last year that I would make Jimmy and myself new hats and mittens/mitts for next winter. 

I've got a hat for me finished, and it is definitely cold enough to wear it right now! I knit this out of our Grove Worsted in a new colorway called Alice. It's a little deeper color than our Morning colorway, which I love.

I'm pretty sure this is going to be a new favorite of mine, as I'm already planning socks and sweaters in this color.

The pattern is the Clover Hat by Susan B. Anderson, and it's perfect for me. I did modify the ribbing to make it a little deeper, but other than that, I knit it as written.

That said, what I need to do is cast on for Jimmy's new hat. He's got a couple of hats he really likes, but he needs a really warm one for those super-cold days. 

Do you have a favorite hat pattern?
