The Hat I Can Neither Spell Nor Pronounce

I finished my hat!  It's a slouchy hat, so since the whole thing is held on only by the ribbed band, I had to be very careful blocking it.  I did get it blocked though and it does stay on properly, so now I have two hats.

The pattern is Pelagia Noctiluca from the Knitters Curiosity Cabinet, Volume 3.  Apparently the name is something from the octopus or squid families (I'm not looking at the book right now, but I seem to recall a picture of some sort of octopus looking character sitting by this pattern.)  Maybe using the Ink colorway was fitting?  The yarn is Madelinetosh Pashmina.  It was a well written pattern and the lace was easy to knit.  I worked four repeats of the main chart and I think I got just the right amount of slouch on my hat.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
