samurai armor hat
Ridged Helmet Hat by Ann Budd
Needles & yarn
165 yards = 1.5 skeins
Grignasco Top Print
275 yards in stash
1.5 skeins = 165.0 yards (150.9 meters), 75 grams

Still learning that my gauge is loose; I made almost the whole hat with the recommended size 3 needles. It took 4 skeins and was the size of a prize-winning pumpkin at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. So I remade it on smaller needles and cast on fewer stitches than recommended. It fits snugly and covers the ears. The Grignasco Top Print is very soft and was amenable to being frogged.
