I finally finished it! Woot!
It’s absolutely ridiculous that I’ve been working on this hat pattern for two years, but I originally wrote it for sport weight yarn, and while a stockinette stitch hat out of sport weight yarn might be warm enough for some people, I would get frostbite on my ears in that, so I rewrote it for worsted weight. Hey, I live in Michigan. It gets cold here in the winter.
Ignore the squinting and the dorky expression. Just look at the hat. Nice hat, eh? I used about 80% of a skein of Happy Fuzzy Yarn American Worsted in the Enchanted colorway.
And I topped it off with the perfect ceramic button from Root Farm Studio. (They don’t have a website, but you can reach them at rootfarmstudio at yahoo dot com.)

(And if you want to make it in sport weight, you can! You plug your gauge into the pattern, so while I wrote it for worsted weight, you can also use it for any weight yarn you want!)
