Bond Cap

Here she is, bathed and finished:

Pattern: Adapted from hat pattern in the Bond USM booklet

Mods: 2x2 ribbing rather than rolled hem. I had to rip and work the bind off a second time with US 10.5 needles since my first try wasn't stretchy enough.

Yarn: Brunswick Germantown 100% Virgin Moth-Proof Wool (they don't make 'em like that anymore), from the same skein I used for my gauge swatch for Stitches

Keyplate: Keyplate 1 on the Bond USM

Comments: Meh... After latching up the ribbing and sewing the seam I doubt knitting it on the Bond was any faster than hand knitting would have been. Still, not too bad for a beginner's first attempt, I think. To be donated to charity, as it's sized for a child.
