Squares Squared

Pattern: Squares Squared by Cosette Cornelius-Bates
Yarn: Elann Sierra (two shades) and Punta Merisoft
Needles: US7
Notes: I was trying to use up odds and ends for this hat. Clearly I didn't choose too well. I convinced myself that the variegated was brighter and deeper in color than it really is. So the contrast isn't so great. The pattern is very simple but the charting could use improvement as it doesn't mark areas that are not stitches. I think a newer knitter or someone who is not accustomed to charts would find them pretty confusing.
