It's done, including weaving in the dangly bit that shows in the photo.

It's for Hudson, who picked the yarn and the pattern.

LB laughs at me every time I try it on, which I'm thinking is not a good sign, but what does he know? He never wears knit hats.

It has a cool cast on, from the center of the hat, and an interesting slip stitch rib. The yarn is one of the kettle-dyed South Americans, I think Araucana or some such name. Time: about 2 days of solid knitting.

It occurred to me that knitting it without the brim, changing colors for the ribbing and then adding a matching contrast tassel would make a very, very cool, Victorian-looking, smoking cap type thingamajig. I'm liking that idea a lot. I don't smoke, but LB does.

Then again, he needs to stop laughing at me in Topi first.
