The Boyfriend Hat is that kind of hat, the kind that’s someone else’s, the kind that you’ll beg, steal or lie to make yours. Well, skip the thievery and just knit one up for yourself… And once you do, don’t let it out of your sight!

The Boyfriend Hat in Line Weight’s Newest Colors | Purl Soho

We knit up our original Boyfriend Hats in classic marled neutrals, but this season we’re dipping into our new rich and spicy palette to put a colorful spin on the subject. Either way, two strands of Purl Soho’s incredibly soft Line Weight merino make this hat perfectly tempting!
