I told you I'd finish it today.
I put the finishing touches on Odessa this morning, and took pictures of it at The Knitting Nest this afternoon.
I managed to finish the top with my weird magic loop hybrid, although I switched to a pretty basic magic loop towards the end.
The hat turned out pretty good, but I somehow ended up a stitch short, which meant one of my ridges was thinner than the others. (You can see it here.)
To recap, this is Odessa, which is now only available on Ravelry since MagKnits called it quits. I used one skein of Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK in Ballad Blue (508) and size 6 beads from Joann. The ribbing was done with US Size 0 dpns and the rest was knit with a US Size 2 - 16 inch circular.
This hat is another Christmas gift.
