I made this awhile ago, and am just now getting around to sharing it with you...I've been really bad like that lately!
My Mom had actually been creating a hat from this pattern when she ran into an issue, so I grabbed this awesome yarn, picked up my hook & got going so I could trouble shoot it. I was planning on just frogging it (ripping it out) after I was done, but I really like how it turned out so it's now a keeper!
You probably can't tell from the photo of the finished hat, but I used the "Starlight" Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn for this...LOVE it! It has just the perfect amount of shimmery gold strands running through it's creamy softness.
Here's some other angled shots I took with my cell phone when I was trying to decide if I would frog it or not.
