Tails to Hat

We have these bowls of Madeline Tosh Unicorn Tails on the table...but what to do with them?  
Ann used these tiny skeins of Tosh Merino Light to make a One Bad Ombre hat!
What a fun way to use these little pops of color.  The pattern is available as a Ravelry download.  The designer makes lots of notes and comments about her gauge, but Ann suggests using the US3 recommended in the pattern.  The nice little turned hem adds a clean finish to the brim of the hat, and the length is perfectly slouchy without being sloppy.  Seems like a great project to add to the gift knitting list, doesn't it?
