*boom*. Hat done. Ready to go under the tree.
Pattern is Rikke.
Yarn is Scarlet Fleece Ewe Silky Thing (formally Silk & Ivory) in Favorite Jeans.
Needles: US 4 for brim and 7 for the rest.
Mods: Knitted cast-on, because I was lazy and didn't feel like youtubing the German Twist-thing, 8" before decreasing instead of 9, because I didn't want a super slouchy hat and because I was slightly (and probably justifiably) worried about running out of yarn.
My version raveled here.
