I love this hat because it's:
Easy to knit
Stylish and warm
And you get two-for-one - it's fully reversible, just turn it inside out!
slightly gloomy pics - a distinct lack of daylight this week!
And he loves it, which is a relief.
The pattern is Christopher by Jane Richmond, and it knits up on 4.5mm needles. I used some more Sublime organic merino from my stash. It's wonderfully soft, with a fine halo. It's such a shame this wool has been discontinued, though I have to confess to buying quite a few balls in various colours when it was discontinued at Kemps and Black Sheep (both sites are worth keeping an eye on, the occasional gem turns up).
