I bought this yarn to see how it knits up/what it feels like, as I was interested using it for a sweater.

I gotta say, I quite like it! It has nice texture/body and feels pleasent!

I love this hat pattern! So cute!
When working the short rows it’s easier to count the remaining stitches for the second turn, I wish this had been incorporated into the pattern, but it’s easy to work out the math and jot it down before cranking out some hats!
I might also work just one more garter ridge before starting body of hat to give it a wee bit more length.

I had a fair amount of leftover yarn and made a pompom for this super manly awesome hat.
