I love my hat

I finished this a while ago, but took forever to take pictures. I have yarn ready to go for another one, I wear it everywhere! Only problem is, if I get too warm while wearing it, it's sweaty head city (which also leads to the oh-so-attractive hat-head).

I used two skeins of Cascade 220 in the 9412 colorway (I hate it when yarn companies use numbers for colorways!), size 10.5 needles for the main part of the hat, and size 6 for the strap. It's weird-looking when you aren't wearing it, since it's so long to create the bunched area in the back. It kind of looks like Marge Simpson's hair. The pattern is the Just Like a Peasant Cap, and it was quick and really easy.

I feel like a pirate when I wear it.

Very sweet hat! I am getting the pirate-esque feel too! :D

That is a fabulous hat! I so wish I could knit something other than scarves (or anything else in a straight line!)
