I finally got the Japanese pattern book I had been waiting for and this is my first FO from it (I'm still trying to translate the name of the pattern, so I'm just calling it my Bayberry Hat for now).
I used Knit Picks' Telemark in Bayberry, (2) US 3 circular needles and a 3.5mm crochet hook for the edging. This is also my first combination project (you know, knitting and crochet), pretty pleased with the results. It did come out a little large, but I love it nonetheless.
I'm falling in love with Japanese patterns. OH! They're so cute!!!! And so "why didn't I think of that?!"
