I love the yarn I used for my stripy cardigan. It's soft and smells just very faintly of sheep. I love the ways the colours look. So I made a hat to match the cardy.
It won't surprise you that the pattern came from the same copy of Knitscene as the jumper, I'm basically knitting my way through the stripe story (called "selfishly stripped") in order. I did add a couple of extra repeats to the hat, to get just the right amount of slouch, particularly since I didn't want to block it. I really like the way the body of it is textured and I didn't want to reduce that effect. It was a really quick, fun and satisfying knit. The weather had suddenly turned cool, so I might even wear it today.
