The Tale of Iro the Hero

These days its all about stash busting and making something new out of something old. I set to clean up stash for projects and found some skeins of a lovely shade of Noro Iro (#40).
It just jumped on the needles and knit itself! Twice!

Sockhead Hat

I’ve had this yarn, in a yarn cake, in my “one day I’ll find something to do with you” basket, when I came upon this fun and simple pattern.Needle US 3. Need help identifying the yarn- the yarn is very soft and squishy, and nice color transitions- anyone has a guess? I added the red stripe to liven it up. Stopped the stockinette part at 6” and had to make dec a little more rapid because yarn was running out.
