I literally knit this hat twice. The first time it turned out huge, so I "frogged" (unraveled) it and reknit it with fewer cast on stitches so it would be a more normal head size. As you can see from this first photo, the hat overlying the first attempt shows how much larger it was than a more normal size hat.
The pattern used is David's Hat by Kenny Chua. The yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in two colors (black, gold). The pattern called for casting on 110 stitches which resulted in a very large hat. I reknit it casting on only 90 stitched for a much better size.
This next photo is of me modeling the first knit (large size).
This last photo is of me modeling the reknit (more normal size).
