I made this hat based on the "Swell" hat pattern from Knitty.com for my friend Vichu. Since the pattern calls for Cascade yarn but I wanted something softer, I ended up using double strands of a bamboo/alpaca blend and larger needles than the pattern called for. The wave chart as printed comes out a little pointy, so I tweaked that slightly to make the waves appear more rounded. Success!
