Here are some too-low-light pictures of my Koolhaas hat in progress. I do love this hat but the yarn is very splitty. The HempforKnitting was much, much nicer to knit with - but made for a stringier, less dense fabric that I didn't like when it was stretched. This is just perfect. As always, Malabrigo is squishy and soft and sproingy. (Does anyone besides knitters use that word?)

The pattern really is fun - just toothy enough to be interesting without being a full-on assault to your knitting powers (like maybe Shedir, which I loved knitting). What I mean is, you can probably watch tv decently while knitting this hat. It looks complicated, but really it's just a little fussy. But ultimately it's very simple - only an 8-row repeat, and only moving stitches around twice per series.

You should try it.

Ooh! That's the Marron Oscurro right? That's what I did my Pimlico out of! It's gorgeous and a perfect choice for the pattern. Nice.
