FO: Oatmeal Windschief hat

Another day, another stash-busting project, another finished hat.  This is becoming a trend.

Windschief hat.

Pattern: Windschief by Stephen West
Yarn: Morehouse Merino 3-strand in Oatmeal
Needles: US6 and US7
Duration: 25th January to February

I made the bottom ribbing a couple of rows longer than it needed to be but followed the rest of the instructions.  I liked that the pattern was both the cowl and the hat, though the conversion from one to the other is trivial and makes me think about cowl-converting other hat patterns, or hat-converting cowl patterns.

The yarn was as I remembered, eerily light and fluffy, squishy soft, and with a sprinkling of vegetable matter throughout.  My jeans ended up with pieces of hay scattered on them as I worked.  To me, it's not that big of a deal because the yarn more than makes up for the minor irritation.  Despite having a knitting tension that inspires envy from violin strings, this yarn did not break or pull apart for me and there were no knots in my skein.  I like this stuff enough to overlook the hay.

I wonder if I have enough leftovers from this skein and my previous one to make the cowl?
