Old hat, New Hat

My step father gets cold in the house. A lot. Last Christmas, Mom suggested that I knit him a hat, so I did. He wears it all the time now, and my mother is sick to death of it. Ha! Anyway, because of that, I decided to knit him something new for father's day.

Can you guess what it is?

Why, it's another hat, of course!

The first one is posed there in the background, as well, quite peeved at having its thunder stolen.

I can't recall what pattern I based the first hat on, but the new hat comes from the Seaman's Cap pattern (Google cache). I was low on the brown yarn, so the part under the brim is all blue. The new hat went over well; let's hope it gives the old one some much-needed R&R.
