New Hats in my Scarlett Made Etsy Shop

Warning: shameless self promotion ahead!

I have to admit, I’m surprised by how well these mens beanies have done in my easy shop, because, to me, it feels like such a simple design. Knitters are always having trouble making things for their husbands and boyfriends, mostly because they want what we think of as “boring.” Unfussy designs and a limited color palette. Soft yarn is important too, men won’t tolerate anything scratchy. But my simple hat has been fairly popular in my shop, and I’ve even had several custom item orders, so I’m adding 4 new colors. What do you think? Do you like these colors, or are there other colors or designs you would like to see?
