Is this cool or what? I'm really surprised how quick this was and how few mistakes I made (only 3). Considering it's the first hat I've ever done, I'm seriously excited. I used the gnomey hat pattern from here, although I used 100 stitches instead of 50, and 5mm pins instead of 3.25mm and did an extra couple of rows of decrease at the end. I didn't bother with the earflaps, since I've already got one of those thanks to liesl. Amy is already lining up for hers. Lucky we have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow.
