FO Friday: Wine Tasting Rib-a-Roni Hat

This week’s finished object is a cozy merino hat.

It’s not exactly as the pattern instructed – I neglected to read carefully ahead and ended up doing more of the brim rib than necessary, but I still like the way it turned out.

The plus-pattern on the back is slightly different than it should be, but again, I still like it! In addition to being lovely warm shades of red, pink, and purple, this hat is also super soft and the rib gives it a nice stretch so it should be comfy and less prone to hair-squishing.
