wip: skiff hat.

I finally cast on (and finished!) the Skiff Hat. I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, as the pattern calls for, in the artifact color way. It’s a deep forest green and I love it.

Since finishing, I haven’t yet snapped it or worn it because I wonder if it’s too large for my head. Does it overtake me? Anyone else knit this and experience that? I did the watchcap version, not the beanie.

No pom for me, on this one. And I also went down two needle sizes, per some of the recommendations on ravelry, and I can’t imagine how off my gauge would have been if I knit this with the size needles the pattern suggested. The tubular cast on for this pattern was beautiful, too.

Finished snaps, soon.
