I knit this in Sable, a merino/angora yarn blend I found at the thrift store (for $1! for 2 balls). I had a false start initially since the dyelots were different on a small bit of yarn wrapped around one of the balls, so I had to rip part of the hat back once I looked at it in brighter light. There was enough yarn I could knit a deep 1×1 ribbed brim. To help the angora fluff up I ran the hat through a spin cycle and then a round of the dryer (on low heat, checking to be sure it wasn’t felting too much).
