I used a Voyager hat pattern that I purchased a LONG time ago. I knit it out of this luscious hand spun wool that I purchased up in Minot. Lovely!
The pattern is by Smoke and Fire and can be purchased through them. The pattern originally had you knitting the hat flat and then sewing it into a tube. I thought that was dumb so I knit it in the round (as you do with hats) and elongated the top until I thought it was long enough and then tapered the end and added a tassle.
I added my instructions for making this hat in my Ravelry page, please access them using the following link.
