This pattern was amazingly well-written. I made the slouchy version and the only thing I would change if knitting it again would be to do the cast on on larger needles, maybe 6s.
This was my first time doing a tubular cast on, which was interesting. It turned out tighter than I think it was supposed to, but I'm a pretty tight knitter, so I'm not sure what the problem was.
The yarn is gorgeous. I found out about it at a yarn tasting at Loopy Yarns and was so glad it would work for this pattern. It's a tad itchy, but I think my forehead is just really sensitive. All in all, I love this hat and have already worn it a lot. I'm definitely going to keep seeking out slouchy hat pattern. I think Estella might be my next choice.
