And here it is - Voyageur Hat version 1! I think he wears it rather well, don't you? Perfect for future canoe adventures through Keji. Or keeping his ears warm through those Nova Scotian winters. But I think he was expecting something a little more dramatic, so I'm now furiously knitting version 2 with an extra row between decreases to make a longer pointy bit (now finished - see 2nd pic!) There's not too many patterns out there for Voyageur hats, but this one did the job and was dead easy (once I had unravelled the mysteries of 'SSK' - thank heavens for the internet) and pretty quick to knit up. I wonder if there's any other Nova Scotians out there who'd like one... it's a family tradition now for everything I make now: 'You know what you could do with those?' 'What?' 'Sell 'em at the Farmers' Market!'
