What are you most proud of? After completing the knitting of the hat just like given in the pattern instructions, I then made a twisted cord of some of the same 2 yarns used in the hat. I gathered the area between the lower and upper braid bands together along one side of the hat, then secured them with the cord as shown. I really like this bit of added styling, and it is so easy to do.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Note: 2 strands of the fingering weight silk yarn were held together and used as one to make an equivalent thickness sport/DK yarn for the accent yarn in the braid.
