a hat from my head

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Dalegarn Heilo in colours 5062, 5042 and 9145

I realize this is not the Olympic sweater I've been droning on about. That's nearly done. Really. But I got distracted making charts this week. Obsessed, actually. I had purchased 1 ball each of 3 colours of this yarn just to try it out and decided a hat was really the biggest thing to be made from it (when I finished I had very little of the light purple left). So I got to work thinking something up.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. It was very cool knitting a chart I had made myself. I know there's not enough contrast between the light purple and green on the bottom bit. I'll probably do it again with another colour combo. Otherwise, I'm pleased.
