Return of the hat

I'm in a hat phase again. Baby hats, brimmed hats, adult hats. This work-in-progress is a gift for a very particular person, who has had a lot to say about color, shape, and sizing. I'm actually enjoying the pressure to make it perfectly right.

The yarn is rowan 4 ply soft (100% merino wool), which is a joy to work with. It's fairly fine, which is making the project more time consuming than normal, but it really is quite soft and has a nice stretchy quality that makes it great for a hat.
