That really is pretty. I think I'd finish off the top in the off-white/yellow color, like the beginning, but that's just my opinion. It'll be gorgeous whatever you do!!

This would be really pretty in just about any color combo. I'm thinking green/blue...

Can't wait to see the FO!!

Pretty! You have lots of ideas for the top and they would all work. That's why you can never get tired of making hats, there are so many possibilities.

After experimenting with several different options, I settles on making the top brown. I'm almost done and should have pics of the finished product sometime this evening

I'm trying to figure out how to post my pattern on Ravelry. I'll update you once I've gotten it all worked out.

That is one very cool hat! Love the colors, and the way they work up into the pattern. Very nice work

Neat!
I'm so inspired by your fair isle... I haven't tried it yet. Your hat's inside looks so nice and tidy! I love the pattern and I totally agree that the brown looks great on top.
