Banded About

I have had this hat, "Checkered Band Hat", in my queue for a while and thought now was the time to let the pattern out to play on my needles. I didn't want to do the checkered, stranded pattern the pattern called for. Instead, I wanted to use some of my striping yarn that coordinated with another one of my skeins.

I like how the hat turned out. It is a little long and I started the decreasing an inch before the pattern said to. I think next time will will begin the decrease at five inches from the cast on edge. I like the pattern. It is interesting and very easy to knit.
