My first hat
Here is my first hat. I haven't woven in the ends or blocked it yet. There are a few mistakes in the ribbing which don't show here in the picture. I probably won't wear it, but it was really good practice and I will definitely make it again. I'm thinking it would be a good Christmas gift for a few family members (in different colors). The pattern was relatively easy, and since I used Knitpicks Wool of the Andes it is really inexpensive to make. The pattern is here:

Oooh, that is gorgeous!

I love the colors--so wintry, but the hat looks so warm!

Nice work!

I have to agree with everyone here, that is marvelous for a "first" hat. I would have to guess that this wasn't your first experience w/ color work. ;-)

Beautiful!
