Yarn: Sirdar Click with Wool DK, 70% Acrylic, 30% Wool, in purple

Needles: 4mm / 6 US

Gauge: 5 sts and 7.5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Bear Track

Source: BW2, p. 225.

Comments: I really like this one - I think that one set of the tracks would make a really cool hat band, with the rest of the hat in 1x1 rib, or maybe garter.  Although you wouldn't want to do it in a non-blockable yarn like this one - you need to block it to get the pattern to sit nicely, and in blocking this one, I essentially killed the acrylic part of the yarn.  But maybe in some Cascade 220 or something?

ETA: this photo shows the wrong side of the fabric - oops!  :)
