Pattern: Kenzie Tayberry Hat by Cirilia Rose (free)
Yarn: Kenzie in Beetroot (#1004) and Bayberry (#1005) one skein of each
Needles: US #6 (4.0 mm) & US #7 (4.5 mm) Clover Bamboo Circulars
Mods: I stopped the pattern section early by about an inch or so, did a three needle bind off, and then stitched the corners together to make kind of a folded top. Hard to explain but easy to do. I'm not sure if the pattern is written this way since I didn't have it with me when I finished the hat and haven't gone back to check (sorry!) since I'm kind of a lazy knitter that way. Kenzie is an amazing yarn to work with; the blend of New Zealand merino, alpaca, nylon, and angora are soft on the hands and make for an amazingly soft and warm knitted piece. The yarn is also heathered, with nice little blips of lighter, brighter, or contrasting colors of noils which lend a nice depth to the color and interest for the knitter. It really does deserve a nice soak to let the texture and drape of the yarn shine through - I tried to give it a steam and pretty much nothing happened to the fibers - so I highly recommend a yarn bath to get ultimate softness and drape out of the your finished project.
