FO: Milanese Lace Topper

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish worsted tonals in Thunderhead
Needles: US 7 circular and dpns

Pattern: Milanese Lace Topper by tante ehm
Mods: I changed the brim and did an extra lace repeat before the crown decreases
Verdict: Hooray! Like I said while I was still knitting this hat, I think I'd like to make a few more.  The lace is quite pretty, and while I enjoy this slouchy version, making one more like the fitted version the pattern actually instructs could also be fun.

The best part is that now I have a new fall and winter hat for when it starts getting really chilly around here!
