same rules apply, champ. nothing to see here.

I really enjoyed making this hat — Malabrigo is particularly squishy in this k4,p4 rib pattern, and the way the decreases are incorporated into the ribbing so that the rib columns narrow to nothing looks fantastic. (Pattern: The Boy Hat. Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted. Needles: US 7.) Here is a picture of the hat unstretched.

Now take a look at it on my head (a bit smaller than that of its intended recipient):

Apologies for the awkward camera angles. I love this hat. I might need one.
