I finally finished the double knit Faroese hat. I love it! Double knitting (at least in my hands) isn't as even as regular stockinette, but I think it has more character. And this hat is WARM!
One fun aspect of double knitting is that it produces a reversible fabric. This hat is grey on one side and red on the other.
I took advantage of it being reversible to make a fold-up contrasting brim:
I think I'm going to have to wait until next winter to wear this outside. Four layers of wool over my ears is a bit much for April.
