i think it's a rule, i have to knit at least one new hat for myself each winter... this pattern is from this book which i found at our local library (a signed copy!). i hadn't really done much colorwork before and it's been a while, so i had to unravel a couple of times until my tension seemed right. overall this was definitely quick and easy to knit. i used this mustard yarn and this grey yarn. i really like how snug the ribbing is and although the pattern did not call for a pompom… well, how could i resist? anyway, it's a very warm hat with all those floats inside!
