I have over the last few weeks knitted three hats. Two of them for my young friend with breast cancer for whom I made the "one pink heart" quilt. She has lost her hair to the chemo, so I knit her a couple of hats. The third hat is for her husband. You can read their blog, “Fighting Fancy,” here.
This one is a mohair/silk yarn (Artyarns Ensemble Glitter Light) and is very soft. The pattern is Tähdellinen by Tiina Kuu.

or as a slouch hat, unfolded:
