Malabrigo Amanda Hat

Another F.O.! This one was also made from leftover yarn from a sweater I knitted. Can you tell I am stash knitting?!

I followed The Amanda Hat pattern with just one minor adjustment. I added an extra repeat of the stitch pattern before decreasing for the crown in order to compensate for my smaller row gauge. This hat only used about a 1/2 skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted!

The stitch pattern is really simple yet has such a neat woven look to it.

The hat has a very sudden and sharp set of decreases which made the overall shape decidedly fez-like. I like that it is a nice, deep hat and the buttery soft yarn makes it really warm and comfortable.
