What a pretty hat. I'd wear this with a dressy coat to go to a holiday party. Knitting in the round on double pointed needles is a basic skill and this hat is really good practice. And instead of using one yarn with the sparkles already in it, you can combine solid yarn with eyelash or glitter yarn and work them together. I like to customize my projects that way to make them one-of-a-kind. And it's a great way to use up your stash.
