Semi-Swedish Hat

Semi-Swedish Hat

Pattern link on Ravelry is HERE.
For this hat, I used yarn from Knit Picks: Telemark in Skyline (blue) and Drift (cream). The yarn was part of a kit to make fairisle Christmas stockings.  This is my first real attempt at a detailed fairisle project.  I would like to make some mittens to match. That will take some work to figure out.  This is my first knit for the Ravelry "Ravellenic Games".  I cast on this hat during the Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies.

The brim will lay flat when I put this on my noggin but otherwise, the brim tends to roll up. I have not blocked this yet. The pattern designer recommends sewing in a fleece liner to keep the brim from rolling.
