I was happy to join Larissa's knit-along to test knit this hat for her book. The pattern was really great. Nice and easy and fast! I love knitting with Brown Sheep's Lamb's Pride bulky yarn.
I used my US size 17 16" circs and dpns to knit the hat in the round to avoid seaming. It was a quick knit, coming in under 2 hours. I crocheted an anime style vein for the decoration over the left ear.
I'm not sure how the point looks on me, but I like how this hat turned out. This is the first of two hats I knit. The other one is in fuscia and it's smaller because I knit the smaller size and I didn't check my gauge, so it's really small. I'll get a picture of it later.
