I finished this and sent it off. I made it for the craftster May unconditional Swap. I really hope she likes it. She asked for a hat like this or this. I dyed all of the yarn myself (except the black.) It is made according to her size specifications, so I hope it fits him! It's all Wool, I believe I used Patons, but don't quote me on it. I have lots of leftover balls of natural colored yarn in my stash, I just looked for balls that had the same thickness and color so it would dye evenly. Took forever to dye it all. I had a few shades that didn't turn out very well.

My gnome was the closest thing to a head that would fit this hat, so he was the happy model.
