I made this hat a last month from some KnitPicks Merino Style yarn using the Simple Pleasures Hat pattern from Purl Soho. I lost my hat in a car in NYC last November and went all winter without one which was a little inconvenient so I decided I needed one this year. It was getting cold out so I found this yarn in my stash and went with it. At first I thought it turned out a little more dude style than I had wanted but now I really like it. It's really warm and soft, my only complaint is the cuffed brim leaves me talking really loudly since it muffles my hearing quite a bit. Overall this knit was a success!
