I have fallen in love with di.ve Teseo yarn. It is beautiful, so nice to work with and very affordable - at least compared with other high quality yarns. I decided to make a different version of the Seafoam Hat with a slanty twist, so here it is.
Note: The colors are a little more accurate in the above picture.
1 skein di.ve Teseo Color #25565
US size 8 needles
yo: yarn over
ssk: slip two stitches one at a time knitwise, place both back on the left needle and knit them together.
k2tog: knit two stitches together
tbl: through back of loop
Close-up of pattern:
Cast on 77 stitches.

Break yarn leaving a long tail. Sew the tail through the last 8 stitches on the needle and then use it to seam up the side of the hat.
