Dear knitters, if you're anything like my other half, you may well question the sanity of making a winter hat in the middle of July.... will it suffice to say that I was gripped by Jared fever? I blame him entirely... and after I'd blogged about his gorgeous pattern I just had to follow through by making it.
It is indeed a piece of hatty gorgeousness.
I amended the pattern slightly to make it fit me better - (have given full details on Ravelry here)
The yarn is Sublime Baby Cashmere, Merino Silk, which feels DIVINE against the skin. No itch factor, just silky, silky softness. Unfortunately it does pill a bit though... (I suppose you can't have everything)
Anyway 'tis done. Now I shall sit and wait for autumn to roll along...
