I have lost count but this is my favorite hat in quite a while. It is a fingering weight cashmere - I don't know the brand but I love how it knits and feels.
I did all my decrease stitches as purls thinking it would look like a ribbed decrease but it just looks a little puckered instead. Still, I am very happy with how the decrease worked out.
I lost my first hat somewhere between Paris and New York so I made this one for myself then realized it belongs on my best friend's head. Hooray for another hat finding its head.
