no longer in progress

I haven't attempted blocking this yet (I don't usually block hats), so other than that, this hat is done:

To block or not to block. . .

Pattern: Relm by b r o o k l y n t w e e d, from Knit.1 magazine, Fall/Winter 2008
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Squirrel Heather
Needles: size 5 circ and dpns for main part, size 4 for ribbing

I wanted an understated hat for a change. I wasn't planning to use this yarn for the hat, but then it clicked. The yarn is really soft though I found it a bit splitty. The pattern is fun to knit. It has a nice rhythm.

If you're planning on knitting this hat, check the errata page so that when you start decreasing, everything turns out pretty.
