I have been wanting to knit this hat for quite a while, and I finally got around to it. I had two skeins of Noro Kureyon in my stash that were perfect for this. I liked that the colorway is darker, so the striping doesn't get too crazy. Also, I'll be able to wear the darker colors with more things.
This hat is made using short rows and knitting a bunch of domed wedges and then seamed up the back. I really like the way the stripes turn at the brim of the hat, and I also really like the slight point at the top! My favorite part is the the blue and black stripes on the front of the hat. I want to wear this hat all the time, but it's a bit itchy. I hear that Kureyon gets much softer after a couple of washes, so maybe I will have to try that.
