I made this black hat in about an hour on my Addi Express and the cotton nylon blend worked really well! It’s 130 rows for an adult size hat.
This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.
