I had mentioned that it used to take me a week or so to complete a relatively simple hat. My Ravelry notes indicate that The Original took 5 days to make. The Replacement has taken.... 3 1/2 months. ;-)
I love the top of this hat. The decreases are staggered so there is no pinwheel effect.
It is as close to an exact replacement as possible, right down to the yarn brand, color and lot number. In fact, this hat was started with what was left of the original yarn and finished up with my Ravelry find which is a discontinued, organic, merino that is delightfully squooshy.
I tried it on after I wove in the ends and grinned at Hubba. He said. "Isn't it a little warm to be wearing a hat like that?"
Yes dear, but that's not the point. ;-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
