I think this is my new favorite pattern.
I did make a few modifications:
• I had to come way down in needle size to get gauge
• Ribbing done is the smaller needles (US#6 4mm)
• Did a K2P2 rib for 1.5 inches
• Hat body knitted with the larger needles (US#7 4.5mm)
I did 9 stacks of bricks before starting the decrease section
Got 4 hats from these 2 skeins of yarn.
