A Luxury Hobo Hat

I took my wee skein of luxury yarn and immediately wound it into a ball.
I have had Jane Richmond's Pasha pattern laying around for a while, so I whipped up a hat.  It was supposed to be in DK weight yarn, but I didn't let that stop me.
 
The yarn was hand-dyed, and apparently still had a lot of dye in it.  It turned my fingers blue.  But, it created this fascinating spiral on the hat.  I kept watching it grow and grow.
 
It is a little bit slouchy.  I did an extra couple repeats of the pattern to compensate for the fingering yarn.  DK really would create a better slouch (rather than the mere flop I have going on here), but I like it all the same.  This is before I blocked it, so the lace will be more pronounced.



 And it only sort of makes me look like a hobo.
