FO hat. but I think i'll frog it
Made this for my son but its too big. Its sooooooo soft. Lurve this yarn. Alpaca with a twist yarn, Baby twist. http://www.yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=2570
I got 4 skeins of it. Maybe a branching out scarf? I might try to double it and make a "stronger" hat? I don't know.......

It looks great! Do you mean it's too tall? Couldn't he just roll the brim up further or is it too big around?
