the cast on is tricky. I kept trying to rotate the work (ala a sock toe) instead of turn. envision making rainbow shaped arcs with the 5-stitch on each end as the tips of the rainbow.

Worked on this for one evening, then knitting in, and then I decided I wanted to wear it the next day so I listened to a bunch of podcast and finished it. such a good pattern!

I have not yet blocked it, but it’s slightly loose on me. considering stringing a piece of yarn through the outer edge to slightly tighten it. Bonus, I took it off after being out all day and it didn’t squoosh my hair beyond all recognition. yes!

Naming it Purple Snow - I was really inspired to knit a hat like this after watching Once Upon A Time and seeing Mary Margaret (aka Snow aka Snow White), and so I had to get that in the name. plus, we had a seriously unexpected late March snowfall the first day I wore it, so I’ll remember that.

3/27: blocked and dried, wove yarn through outer edge and this worked perfect.
