My first hat!!!
I'm SUPER pumped about this... it's only the second thing I've every finished and tbqh, I can't belive how nice it turned out!!!!

I used an amazing yarn that I just couldn't put down (Malabrigo Worsted Merino), and of course the pattern was very simple. I don't have a photo of the top yet since all the attempted self photographs of the top of my head failed, but I LOVE the decrease pattern :o)

I made it slightly smaller than the original pattern because the problem I have with every mens knitted cap is that it's baggy. Now I don't have to waste money at A&F on hats that don't fit and/or are itchy, I can make my own for MUCH less money... and imo they're WAY cuter.

Ignore my smug look... it's late and I was just SO happy to finish it... in fact, I'm still wearing it!

Congratulations! It looks awesome! For winter you could make one another 1-1.5 inches to keep your ears warm and it still won't be baggy because the top fits so nicely.
