I did it!

Found this gorgeous yummy yarn on my "ladies retreat" up in Tofte at the end of June and designed this hat all by myself!  The contrast in colors aren't the best but they are the team colors and will keep me warm during the hockey games.

Frog Tree Alpaca Sportweight yarn

Cast on 132 stitches and did 4 inches of 1x1 rib before 2 or 3 rows of purl (for turning). Then I did about 9.25 inches of patterns that I picked from lots of books. Turned it inside out, 3 needle bind off and sewed the 2 corners together on the outside. Time to wash and block but I LOVE IT!
