Stocking cap for the Downtown Yarns Hat Challenge!

This week I finished my first ever sample for Downtown Yarns! Rita asked everyone to make a chunky hat for a hats and pompoms window display. I have been wanting to make a snow-queen-esque stocking caps so this was a perfect opportunity! This guy is knit with two skeins of Malabrigo Chunky in Water Green. I added a little bit of white angora to the pompom for pizzaz. :)

I actually had to knit this hat three times before I got it right. The first time the drape wasn't right. The second time it just grew too much and I decided to pull it out and drop down a few more needle sizes on the ribbing. BUT the third time's the charm! I am currently writing up the pattern and it will be available as a house pattern at Downtown Yarns.
