I finished this hat tonight. The pattern is Lacecap from Knitty, and the yarn is a first for me: 100% yak from Copper Ridge. This is one of those yarns that's been in my stash a while. Hubby's friend's girlfriend asked me to make her a hat, and then chose this yarn from my stash and the pattern from several I showed her. I think she'll like it. The yarn is interesting. It has a soft core but sort of scratchy guard hairs. It's a beautiful natural chocolate color. I think this will be a nice winter hat for our climate.
