'Capucine' hat, done in handspun merino yarn.  This is an amazingly easy, fast knit - I cast on and finished in an evening, when the weatherman was predicting snow.  Snow in the South is a rare enough occasion that it deserved a new hat!

I love that hat pattern! I've been trying for ages to knit that hat! I don't know why, but mine always come out really really small.

I love that hat!!  You are making me want to learn to hand knit here.  I machine knit but that looks like faaaar too many increases to deal with on a machine.

Awesome - and wisted!

Edited to add...
I have been thinking of this hat since I saw it.  I just read the pattern and I am going to try and attempt it tomorrow on the knitting machine.  It looks like the majority of the decreases are on the side until the last part which will be interesting at best - but I'm going to give it a try and see how it turns out. What have I got to lose?
I do think I will learn to hand knit again though.  This is not the first time I've wanted to make something that I figured would be much too difficult to do on the machine - not to mention that I want to add knitted stuffies to my site.  Yup. Gotta learn to hand knit. That is all there is to it.  Wink

Beautiful job! And making it in one night amazes me, it still takes me a week to make a scarf!

Love the hat and the colors you used in your yarn...it looks great!

I think I'm going to have to add this to my knitting queue...it's like a hat that looks like a hood. Plus the tassel kind of looks like a ponytail! Smiley
