Here is the latest from my hat jag, the Tasseled Fez from Charlene Schurch's Hats On!. It is knit in what I would consider a very firm gauge. In other words the stitches are very tight, making for a warm and windproof hat. Quite a wrestling match to knit, but I like the results.
The crown of the hat lends itself well to the three needle bind off technique (worked on the right side) for constructing the points. I also love this technique (worked on the wrong side) for shoulder seams of sweaters. HERE is a pretty good video tutorial.
