One thing I really like about the design of the hat is the way the four panels come together at the top. I have had trouble with this type of thing in the past, so the results are particularly pleasing. I like the balance of light and dark at the top, too.
The inside looks pretty good--notice the Blood Red Lining. I tried to be diligent about carrying the yarn evenly across the back, but I like that the lining covers up the part that is most likely to be handled and therefore snagged.
- Pattern: Hello Yarn (there are other great patterns there)
- Main Yarn: Dale of Norway Heilo, one skein charcoal and one skein cream
- Lining Yarn:GGH Merino Soft, fairly small amount of red
- Needles: Size 1 (lining) and 3 (all else), 16" circulars. Origin of each unknown, but the size 1 is brutally sharp. Do not attempt to take on a plane!!!
