What materials did you use? I used a combination of Italian kid mohair boucle', Irish & domestic wool. It's amazing what things can happen when you knit different fibers together. Alone, these yarns didn't look like they would coordinate, together, they look like the colors of fall. This is my own pattern.

What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with the texture and fit. This hat seems to fit and flatter everyone who has tried it so far. I think it is a good wardrobe essential to have a neutral, natural fiber accessory.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure to always, always, always knit a gauge swatch. I purchased a wonderful Craftsy online hat fitting class by Stephanie Japel that really helped me to custom fit hats.
