Double pointed needles

Another first for me.
I used double pointed needles to finish this hat I made for my mannequin. 
Double pointed needle work is difficult and not much fun for me.  Of course, I don't know if I used them correctly.  I should have first watched a YouTube lesson on how to knit with them.

I use my mannequin to model my necklaces and earrings that I sell on etsy.  I thought a hat would be nice since she doesn't have any hair.
I haven't named her yet.  Fiona comes to mind, or Dahlia.

I used brown tweed wool for the hat.  The pattern had a bit of lacey work to it which was another new challenge for me.

The hat turned out beautifully. I'm not very good at using double pointed needles...
