Hand knit from my hand spun

I hand dyed some Merino wool, with blue and orange Easter Egg dye , and got a fun mix of blue, orange, and a hint of green. Then I spun it up into a warm and soft DK weight yarn. I decided to knit a hat with this yarn. It is a simple beanie style hat, with a 2 x2 ribbing, the ribbing is 3 and 1/4 inches long. The hat is 9 and 1/2 inches long, so that the ribbing can be folded up if you would like, extra warmth over the ears.
