Rikke Hat - Madelinetosh Style
Zuzu's Petals was my second) working with Madelinetosh and I love it. The yarn has a bit of spring to it (but not much) which was perfect for this hat. It makes the slouch just right. It is also incredibly warm. The color is a gray, but it has a bit of purple to it, which I really like.
That's all. The perfect hat made from the perfect yarn. I'm off to find more projects that I can knit with Madelinetosh!

Date Finished: March 3, 2012
