Mountain Mist is a great hat with lots of texture!! I really love how the fpdc stitches give such a thickness to the hat, and I’m pretty sure it will keep you warm in the upcoming winter months. I’ll probably have to make the hubby one with some “manly” colors! I’m also thinking of a few other projects I’ll make using this stitch too!!
