I finished this lovely little hat in about a month (among other projects that I'm working on). It was easy yet kept my interest. It's really comfortable to wear using Stricken Smitten yarn in Aran weight. The yarn is so soft and warm, this will be my go-to hat this winter!
The pattern is by Natalie Larson. It is very well written with written directions and charts. It was easy to follow and understand. I'd recommend this hat to all knitters!
