Bucket hat, finished.

Here's the finished hat. Pattern is the bucket hat from Chicknits

-- not a style I've knit before. I think it looks better on the wig stand than on me. I also think it might be a little small for my head. It took me 4 tries (!) to get this size since the yarn is not a consistent size; I'd make it bigger but I'm afraid that it would fall down over my nose then.

Yarn is handspun from the early 90's. The hat weighs 77 grams. The brim was knit on size 4 needles; the stand & crown on size 6's.
