FO: Midas Hat

This is a Midas Hat, knit in Black Cat Fibers Sirtir, colorway “Electric Avenue”.   This is a free pattern on Ravelry.  I don’t need another hat (especially since it was 80 freakin degrees this weekend and hello, it’s DECEMBER).  I had totally forgotten that I would want something I didn’t have to think about to knit on while we had family over for the holiday, so I cast this on.  I knit the brim in some leftover Madelinetosh 80/10/10 fingering in Button Jar Blue.

This was a pretty enjoyable knit.  I think technically the contrast inside brim is a pattern modification, but lots of people did this, so I’m not really counting it as a mod.  I did knit mine a little bit longer than indicated but that’s pretty much it.  Actually, that’s not true – I think I also cast on like nine more stitches, because there’s only one size in the pattern and I was afraid it wouldn’t fit me, even though (as usual) I went up a needle size.
