I finished this hat in early December, but didn't like the pictures I took, so was going to take more - I never did and (as you can see with the green grass) decided to just go with what I had.
THIS picture I love :)
I wanted natural sheepy colors so I carded a batt made from Mixed BFL, cormo, yak, merino and cashmere/silk - all super soft fibers for the fluffiest batt ever!
and spun 177 yards of aran weight 3 ply yarn
The construction of this hat is fun - knit the shaped (bigger in the front with the cables getting smaller ending in ribbed back) cabled band 1st (beautiful in itself as a headband), then pick up stitches and knit the slouchy top.
