Every part of this was a good change of pace- the stitch pattern, the shaping, the loops, and the notions.
I used size 3 and 4 needles and the Knit Picks yarns I won in a giveaway: Biggo in Wonderland Heather and Swish Dk in Marble Heather.
I wasn't sure if lining the entire thing would affect the fit of the hat, but it doesn't seem to. I tried to stagger the loops from one row to the next. I like that they didn't have to be too precise. I could just eye it and start working.
Wildflower Button Studio, that I won last year in a knit- along.
This was my first accessory to try from the Holla Knits Accessories 2014 collection. There is some really fun stuff in there! I know I'm going to make Cedar Glen Mitts during the upcoming Holla Knits Knitalong.
