Hazzah!! I made a hat! I used the additional yarn I had from the scarf project to make a matching hat. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Although, I am thinking of making a bigger pom pom for the top. I still have some left over yarn, so I am going to attempt to make some mittens next!
NOTE: I must admit that the hat and mitten patterns are for straight needles and are sown up with a seam. Once I get the hang of things, I will attempt the circular knitting method where you knit in the round and no seams are needed.
