Samurai armor hat

Yay! I can now provide a link for non-Ravelry members to see my items on Ravelry.

Pattern: Ridged Helmet Hat by Ann Budd (The link goes to a page where you can purchase the pattern; the pattern used to be available for free also but I can't find the free version online now.)
Craft: Knitting
Made for: friend (I'll change this to the name of the friend if they give permission)
Size: one

Yarn: Grignasco Top Print
How much? 1.5 skeins = 165.0 yards
Colorway: 442 purples/greens
Acquired: gift from leandra333's stash

Still learning that my gauge is loose; I made almost the whole hat with the recommended size 3 needles. It took 4 skeins and was the size of a prize-winning pumpkin at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. So I remade it on smaller needles and cast on fewer stitches than recommended. It fits snugly and covers the ears. The Grignasco Top Print is very soft and was amenable to being frogged.
