So my hat is slowly growing. What do you think of my progress so far? I really like the pink skull. A white one might have contrasted too much with the rich burgundy background.
I think the only hard part has been dividing my skeins of yarn into smaller balls. Intarsia isn't hard, but it requires frequent untangling of strands . . . argh!
With most of the intarsia complete, the hat should move along quickly now: decrease for the crown and then seam up the back.
