I finished the hat I casted on yesterday. It was a quick knit. My only complaint with the pattern is that it called for sewing a seam. I'm going to get some size 10 sixteen inch circular needles and knit it in the round.
Since I sewed it up with mattress stitching, the seam is on the outside and I'm not sure it will look right with it showing and I definitely did not want the seam on the inside.
Other than that, it was fun and easy to make. Now that I see the pattern emerged it looks exactly like the same pattern I used on nick's scarf.
