Red Light Special Hat

I am working on a hat I saw on Brooklyn Tweed's site: The Red Light Special.
It's a four color fair isle. It's really "interesting" knitting. (Is that a euphemism?) It has been fun to see what happens with the colors. Unpredictable. Delightful. Maddening. The chart is repeated four times around the hat. So the green yarn is just marking the quarter panels of pattern. To avoid any hint of scratchy hat syndrome I am using Cachemir Anny, an Anny Blatt Wool/Cashmere blend. It is a beautiful yarn to work with.
