Inga hat - finished!

My secret Inga hat has been finished! I knit it with Patons Classic Merino (black, and my white/purple/green dye job), size 6 needles (double pointed, then circular+double-pointed, then double pointed again - phew -), and modified its length by starting the fair-isle on row 20. It is still quite long.
I failed entirely at the knitted braid, lost my patience, and finally hand-sewed the curling bottom edge up and inside the hat.

It took something like 13 hours to knit, which is crazy. My colourwork is one-handed, slow, and sloppy.

But isn't the pattern gorgeous? (by Sheila Macdonald).
