pattern: Kozue - こずえ by Anat Rodan
yarn: Koigu KPM, 46g
needles: 3.7mm and 4mm
Really, this yarn is green (it's the 1239), but depending on lighting it apparently might look rusty brown, bronze or golden. That kind of threw me off when I brought the skein home, but now we're getting along just fine.
The pattern is by Anat Rodan; just a tad different than Excess, as the original design for this hat is a bit more sportish and shorter. But since I fell in love with slouchy hats I did more repeats than the pattern suggested. Very happy with the result though I still like my Excess more.
