FO: Fisherman hat

I finished my fisherman hat. Love the shape and the feel of the Rialto DK!
The pattern, Stephanie Nicole's A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend, was super easy to follow and made a good product!

The pattern calls for the ribbing to display as 3x2, but I liked the look of the inside, instead. Either way, stretching the fabric out gives some nice, open ribs. I chose to cast on 90 stitches instead of the suggested 100, since the fabric was so stretchy. 

Thanks to my husband for being a patient model! I was woefully unprepared to model it myself!
