This was a fun hat to make, and pretty quick, too, except for the K1P1 colored ribbing, which was a wee bit of a pain since I’d never done it before.

I had the 10.5 dpns to knit the top, but my 16 inch 10.5 circular is awol so I used a 10. Even on the smaller needles it fits me perfectly!

The brim wants to roll a bit. If you make this hat I suggest using a natural yarn since acrylic doesn’t block so good. Though I guess you could just tack the brim in place. I probably will if it keeps giving me trouble.
