I used dark blue (photo is lighter than actual colors) and black. Size 7 needles - I have found the gauge to be off with this yarn - seems to be thicker than natural wool would be - Very quick and easy knit. Two hats , two nights! I knit till 6.5" on both hats then decreased with a plain row between the decrease rows.
She recently made another one in Noro - just gorgeous! Check it out.
I added some rows of crochet - to finish it off.
Used Lion Brand Jiffy yarn - 4 skeins.
Gifted to a friend.
Pattern was free on Ravelry. I used some green wool yarn in my stash and the white is handspun merino.
Pattern is here:

I used Plymouth Encore yarn 2 skeins 0 in soft white (off white) and size 10.5 needles. I knit this till it was my height 5.5" - soaked and blocked. For my daughter.
