FO: Phanessa Tam

This is new design (hopefully) and my latest FO:

I nearly killed my hands and wrists knitting this entire hat in a weekend from design sketches to final blocked piece, especially as the ribbing is on 2mm needles with 4ply yarn. I do like the it and it fits well. Although the photos don't show it there's a subtle butterfly motif on the sides (where the fold is in the picture) which is why it's called Phanessa which has a tangential link to the name Vanessa which is a butterfly genus.
