Tweedy Topper — or not

Well, because of my yarn choice, this is a non-Tweedy Topper, but that still is the pattern name. Pattern from in Knitter’s magazine, last summer I think (if not summer, spring).

Yarn is Cascade Sierra. Mostly cotton, some merino. Nice, and machine washable to boot. Recommended by my favorite LYS, Knitknacks in Maplewood, NJ. If you are in the neighborhood, you should go and check it out. Wonderful yarn, friendly helpful owners.

Here it is before the hatband:
