The perfect knit hat
January 8, 2014 6:53 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for a knit hat, kind of a beanie/toque hat, but with a very thick rim. All the knit hats I'm finding seem to get thinner at the edge. I think what I want would be similar to a beanie
combined with a really thick ear warmer

I've looked at hundreds of knit hats on Etsy, and tried Googling too. I'd consider asking for a custom order, but I'd at least like a photo of an example hat to show the maker.
This is both for warmth reasons and for aesthetic reasons -- I have cold ears and a wide jaw :)
I think I'd prefer wool to acrylic; I might end up lining it with something thin and cotton if it makes my ears itch.
I've loved Aran and Fairisle patterns; I've tried searching for Aran hats, Irish hats, and Fairisle hats, but I keep coming up with lovely hats that have no thickness at the edge, and no extra length for rolling.
Finally, if there's some reason that I wouldn't really want a hat like this, please let me know.
