Yup, another hat
It's just that time of year for hat knitting. This is the Yarn Harlot's Unoriginal Hat. I knit it with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande. Such soft and squishy yarn. Unfortunately it's too short. Like kkat82, I should have used bigger needles. I think next time I will add about an inch of ribbing to start. It is such a quick knit - a really great pattern.

I love this hat! I wanted one the second I saw it on the yarn harlot's blog. I like the yarn you chose- I bet it's amazingly soft.

How pretty! That yarn is gorgeous!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

That's beautiful! I bet if you picked up stitches along the bottom of the hat, you could still add some ribbing to make it longer.

That is a great looking hat. I might have to make some of my 'knit and donate to Afghanistan' hats out of this pattern.

Thanks for posting the information and the photo of your awesome hat.
