I finished the hat to match Jill's cowl for Kazakhstan on my vacation. I really thought I was going to run out of yarn, but I ended up with about a foot left over.
Stella's Hat, by Knitting School Dropout
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted, Dusty Peach, .5 skein
Needles: Size 7 Knitpicks circular
Time: 2.5 weeks
This is the second time I've made Stella's hat, and I love it. The pattern is fun and interesting (and definitely more intuitive the second time around). It's definitely one of my go-to patterns for a ball of variegated Malabrigo.
And it looks cute on Jiller, too.
