This hat is already brightening my fall. It's the Elora Toque from Tara-Lynn Morrison's Good Night, Day Book 1.
I used my homemade size 13 double point needles to knit this with two strands of Wool of the Andes Bulky in cadet that I had leftover from Agnes. The contrasting dots were four strands of Wool of the Andes worsted in snickerdoodle. Basically, there was yarn hanging all over the place as I worked.
I like two color pompoms so much. Since it looks as though I'll be making more, (I have a few hat requests) I cut a notch in my plastic pompom maker so I could wrap the yarn more easily.
