Gimli hat

I made this hat for myself using some Fantasy Alpaka yarn ("100% Alpaka") I found at A.C. Moore. I believe it's real alpaca, but the spelling and the low price do make me wonder. At any rate, it was fun to knit. I didn't follow a pattern -- pretty much made it up as I went along. I quadrupled the yarn so I could use US size 15 needles. I think it sort of looks like chain mail. Emily says I look like Gimli from Lord of the Rings when I wear it.

Started: Nov. 23
Finished: Nov. 28 (added tassels Dec. 3)
Yarn: Fantasy Alpaka (2 skeins dark gray, 2 skeins light gray but there's lots left over)
Needles: metal circular size 15, bamboo dpns size 15
