I guess I will post my final hat here. I did it couple of months ago and although I did the VW upside down
I am proud of it. It was my first non-scarf project.
I will try with smaller needles next time. DH says it is big on him.
I did the vw with intarsia. It worked but was a big PITA. Can I do it with fair isle next time??
Thanks for the pattern!!
