Little brother's hat

It's done! Finally. Actually, his birthday was yesterday and it still needs to get to the UK, so it's most definitely a late pressie. But since presents are good no matter what, I'm sure he will forgive the lateness of the package. It's a simple two stripe double hat, but this time using Bernat's Satin yarn (therefore adapting the pattern again for the thicker yarn), which is really lovely and soft, and ideal for him, being acrylic since he has sensitive skin and wouldn't follow washing directions. I had a bit of trouble decreasing this hat since the yarn is chunkier than the double knit I'd used for earlier patterns, but got there in the end, and think it looks pretty good (much better than with that crazy blue color too).
