A wonderful easy knit project

This was one of those projects where I had just as much fun photographing as well as knitting.
The pattern is a very simple knit but it creates such a complex, elegant hat.

The pattern starts from the cuff and then decreases to shape the crown. Even from the back, the colors and the design is fantastic.
This is one I did in ice blues and white. These will be in my Etsy shop in a few days. I knitted these in some yarn I purchased at Joann Crafts. The fiber content is 75%nylon and 25% wool, they're pretty soft and stretchy . Both are ladies sizes.
I have another one on the needles, this time it's in Malabrigo worsted in "Autumn" and I'm making this one to fit a man.
