Citadel hat: halfway done!

I’ve been working on a knitting project called the Citadel hat (free pattern), and I’m already halfway through!

Citadel hat halfway through
“But that looks almost complete,” you might be thinking, but the Citadel hat is lined! The provisional cast-on will soon be connected to either a light silver or a coral colored yarn (not sure which yet), which will be worked in stockinette for the entire second layer.  The yarn I used (click here for more info) might not have been the best idea, even though it’s gorgeous and works up so nicely, because the slight variations in color make the stitch pattern a bit difficult to see, but I love it anyway.

Upon trying it on, it’s a tad big for my smallish head, but with the lining I bet some of that space will be filled up (and I like roomy hats that will cover my ears, anyway, so it’s perfect).

Well, that’s all for now!  Thanks for stopping by!
