Love this yarn and this color. The hat is a great pattern and fits my son well. It should be warm for the Colorado winter.

Be warned, the hat takes a bit more than one skein. I was able to get a bit of a skein from a friend.

This would make a great gift - stylish for either a male of female recipient.

I did a tubular cast on and if I do it again, I might start the ribbing with a smaller needle or a few less stitches and add at the start of the pattern stitches. My son thinks it might be a bit loose, but I think he is used to tighter hats.
