There's not so much to say about the hat itself. I made the pattern up as I went along. I was a little off on my gauge (despite swatching...I'm a reluctant but faithful swatcher) so it's on the large side.
I'm only posting here to share the photos of my beautiful Sonoma. This was from my first BRF purchase ever. I'd been unsure what to do with it. One skein. Not enough for a sweater. Very brown at heart -- too masculine?
Judge for yourself. I think it makes a beautiful fall woman's hat (as modeled by my son!).
