I found the pattern for this hat via Ravelry as always.  It is called the Piksi Hat. For any knitter Ravelry is a great source of patterns and if you are not a member you should definately sign up...its free!

This was my first project knitting in the round and I am very happy with how it went. After figuring out the joining at the start everything was pretty easy from there on.

This hat has some great ridge detailing and a cute little pom pom which I think take it from just a basic beanie to something really cute!

I actually figured out halfway through knitting I was doing it single strand instead of double like the pattern asked. I am not sure how much this affected the hat as it still fits. It is not as loose as I was expecting. I think I might try it again soon double stranded just to see the difference.

Cute!  I've been looking for a fun toque pattern for Christmas gifts and this one would definetly work.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

That looks great! I love the pompom on top!
