I just started this hat late last night and finished it this morning. It was really quick to knit since the wool is so chunky and I used size 10 mm needles. The yarn is Ornaghi Filati from Italy and it's made of 50% Lana Wool, 10% Alpaca, and 40% acrylic.
Now I'm working on a scarf with the leftover yarn. My daughter wants a pom pom on the hat, so I'll get some yarn in a coordinating color to make the pom pom and also do the tassles on the scarf.
I found the hat pattern on Garn Studios.
