Comments:
I was a little disappointed with this particular ball of Silk Garden. The bottom of the hat has interesting, vibrant colors, but at the top of the hat the colors are all gray and washed out.
Also, I think this yarn is just too scratchy for a hat. It bothers me when I wear it and I'm not usually sensitive to scratchy wool. Maybe washing it would help.
Also, I think I made this hat about 1 inch too long. I should probably rip back the top of the hat and start the decreases earlier. However, since the hat is scratchy I may not bother with that.

I am not asking for Vogue trade secrets LOL, but I would love to know the basic ribbing pattern of this hat for a charity project. I want to use the ribbing in a small throw. The definition of the "hips and valleys" of the ribs is so perfect.

Can you please post, with deep thanks :)
