No B.S. to accompany this hat, just having fun exploring new stitches and combinations of color and texture. Hats are a great vehicle for learning/exploring.
The colorwork is standard stranded (say that 10 times fast!), and the texture stitch is seed stitch number 5 from the Knitting Fool website (thanks, Frank!).
The yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Cobblestone Heather and Camel Heather.
The lining and texture are done on U.S. size 7, and the colorwork on U.S. size 10.
