finished hat friday
Pattern: Bray Cap by Jared Flood (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: SweetGeorgia Superwash Worsted (one skein, colorway: saltwater)
Needles: size 5 for brim, then 8 for body
Modifications: None! If I had enough yarn leftover I would totally make a huge pom pom for this one! Love this pattern--super fun, and super cute! I was afraid it would be too slouchy, based on the pattern pictures, and was all set to omit some pattern rounds. But what I realized mid-way was that the models are wearing the hat high on their heads--it fits great as is if worn "traditionally" ... aka to cover your ears! So don't worry if you don't like the "slouchy" look. It really fits quite well! I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about how warm a hat with lace eyelets would be, but this hat got a test run during our Wednesday snowfall and passed with flying colors!
