slouchy hat in the "First Fall" issue of knitty and knew I had to have/knit it. It was so much fun to work with the Noro yarn! The colors are beautiful, and the color transitions are just gorgeous. I accidentally altered the pattern a wee bit (how you do). I read "seed stitch rib" in the pattern and interpreted that to mean... what you see up there on the hat. It wasn't until much later that I saw the actual instructions in the pattern, and by then there was no way I was unraveling the whole hat just to fix a cosmetic issue.
When my hat was done, I had some yarn left over, so I made a stripey stocking cap for Noah.
