Finished Object: Kathy's Cap

I was on a mission to get this hat finished quickly - and I loved how it turned out:


The Particulars:

Pattern: Classic Elite's Fresco Simple Slouchy Hat in size Medium
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino, 1.5 skeins
Needles: Aero size 5 - 16" circulars and DPNs
Would I knit this pattern again? This is the second time I have knit this pattern recently - the first being for Tara. It seems that I will be knitting it again soon because Andrew wants a slouchy hat like this as well. What can I say - it's cute and comfortable. And doesn't muss up your hair so much.


The Jack Daniels...? Well. My friend Kathy starts chemo on Thursday - what better way to kick cancer's ass than with a cool, sumptious hat and liquour? Good luck, Kathy! I know this isn't going to be an easy road, but we are all here for you.

Thanks for this pattern. I have a friend who is undergoing chemo and I'm going to make this for her. It's too cute. Thanks again.
