First Finish for Ravelympics!!

Originally uploaded by Tarana5
Finished the Team USA Olympic hat knock-off at noon today! This is an adaptation of the hats worn by Team USA members at the Opening Ceremonies.

I used size 5 needles and Vanna's Choice acrylic yarn with a stitch size of 5.5 per inch. This resulted in a hat just over 22 inches around. The pattern is Olympic Reindeer Hat by Helena Bristow and is a free pattern at Ravelry.

The hat is a little on the tall side. I plan to make an adaptation to use up the remaining yarn and to take the height down.

Hi Steph, would you make me one out of cotton, please?
Thanks, Ellice
