FO: Not-So Fern Green Hat

This is a hat that I made last month, but didn’t ever have the chance to get a photo of it until today. It’s the “Fern Green Hat“, but obviously not Fern Green:

I made it out of Stonehedge Fiber Shepherd’s Wool, in Granite. It’s so soft and cozy! The original pattern is a real beginner’s pattern – make a garter stitch rectangle, seam the sides into a tube, and gather the stitches at the top. Instead, I knit it in the round, but used a no-purl garter-in-the-round technique. The end-of-round line is more visible than when knitting it traditionally (knit one round, purl one round), but it made for a quick knit, and the end-of-round section looks a little more decorative than the straight “seam line” I’d have gotten from knitting it in the round the usual way:

Rather than trying to gather all of the stitches together at once, I did a couple of rounds of decreases first. Details on my Ravelry project.
