If I was going to make the hat again I would take two skeins of the same colorway and work from two directions for this hat. Nevertheless I had two colorways that were not the same, which kind of assured me that there were not going to be color clashes or repeats. I like the last idea better, the skeins were very complementary. It took me less than a day to crochet this hat. I used the Tapestry Crochet Technique to be able to make a nice kind of woven fabric. I went up to a size G or 4.00 mm and I have about 6 to 8 yards left, the hat weighs in at 92 grams and that is with a reversed single crochet edging. If Noro could keep the vegetable matter off it would have made for a more pleasant crochet experience.
