So to make up for this, I am knitting a double thick Paulina Hat. First I am knitting the black version, then I will knit the other color and connect them. Although I am slightly considering just lining it with material and making it reversible in that manner. It needs to be double thick, I originally test-knit this pattern (Rav Link) and it's a great pattern, but one layer does not hold up to the Buffalo winds. One layer of any hat will not hold up unless maybe it was felted.
So here is the black so far:
It's not much to see so far, kind of looks like road kill.
Yarn : Lana Grossa Basics Joker
Color : Black
Content : 80% superwash wool / 20% polyamid
Care : machine wash, lay flat to dry
Needles : US 6 / 4mm (Knitter's Pride Dreamz)
Pattern : Paulina
Modifications : Casted on more stitches to compensate for my gauge on a thinner yarn and also made the ear-flaps completely moss stitch.
