Modifications: None.

Notes: This was my first mystery hat-along and I really enjoyed it!  The clues were pretty short so, for the most part, I completed them within the day but that suited me fine.

I was originally going to dye the yarn but I really like the natural colour and so I’m not messing with it!

I knit the “Extra Slouchy” version and, although I hit the unblocked row tension, it’s not what I would call “extra slouchy”.  However, I think slouchiness is a subjective term and it turned out about as slouchy as I wanted!

I have a fair bit of the yarn left, so I’m considering matching mitts or a cowl.
