I've finished knitting the hat, using the magic loop method. It's based on the Wavy Gravy Hat by Elizabeth McNamee, but I've taken liberties with the pattern. I cast on more stitches than the pattern stipulated, to compensate for using a thinner yarn. But, in my usual fashion, I overdid it and had too many stitches. I contemplated starting again, but instead reduced the number of stitches after a few repeats, which has given a flower petal effect. Accidental, but pleasing.
