I loved Slim's new hat (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=54226&stc=1&d=1266841676) (Capucine) so much, I knit one for myself that very day. I showed the hat to Slim in a Rav message, and she said she thinks you would want to see how the hat looks in a Manos del Uruguay variegated colorway. So here it is. I used double strands to get the correct gauge, and used a US10.5 needle. Slim is right: you start early in the day and you're done by dinner! It's a very quick knit, and the pattern is very easy to follow. Get her links and details here. (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=97897)

I ran out of Manos, so the 3 tassels are mixed with 2 other yarns in addition to some Manos. It worked. Sigh of relief.
Used 251 yds of Manos, color#104. And about 30 yds each of the other two yarns. A rust dk and a dk brown sock weight.

I love this hat! The colors are absolutely perfect, and the variegated yarn really dresses it up. I like the way you made your tassels longer. I have to make another one!
