This is for my friend who needs a warm hat to protect his head for the impending Chicago winter. The color choices are my own and were made to accomodate my rather guyish tastes in color. I also left the ball off of the top. The wool is incredibly soft! I'm very pleased with the way it turned out; I may knit myself a hat out of the leftovers.

Neat hat! The little green things on the bottom band look like aliens! Sockbug

Oh, yes, those little green things at the bottom DO put one in mind of the Roswell Alien. Fun! And I love the colors. How did you like the KnitPicks yarn? I'm temtped by their yarns myself, as the color selections are lovely and the price is certainly right! Am also trying to remember now, where MY copy of Zilboorg's hat book is. I'd forgotten what nice patterns are in that book.
