Here is my Molly hat all completed. I'm very glad I chose to make the solid color version for myself.
I am in love with this yarn Artesano Alpaca 4-ply, and this color Fern is gorgeous. I love the heathery flecks of blue and yellow tones.. but then again I have not yet met a shade of green that I didn't like.
The patterned brim doesn't stand out nearly as much as it does on the striped version, but I think it's pretty just the same.
I'm sure I'll be getting a lot of use out of it this Fall.
