I am pretty proud of this hat. I am a beginner knitter and this hat had me try a few techniques that I had never done. So it was challenging. There are a few mistakes here and there but I am okay with that. I did fix a lot of mistakes as I went and by the end I am really proud of how easily I can figure out and fix a mistake that happened a few rows back :)
I used this pattern (with the addition of the extra cast on stitches), Patons Silk Bamboo yarn color Stone, and I used the circular needles listed in the pattern.
