Knitting yet another winter hat

I saw this stitch over on the purl bee blog a couple of months ago and loved the look of it. I tried to knit a hat using the number of stitches I thought I needed, only to find out the herringbone stitch does not stretch. It wouldn't even fit on my 1 year old's head. I had to completely start all over again. It was taking a long time to do that stitch so I gave up and switched to a knit stitch for the rest of the hat. It's not my favorite hat I've made but it's cute and fits pretty well. I didn't feel like modeling it today, thankfully big bear stood in for me and struck a pose.
