Need Testers for Candide Hat

Noriko HoComment

I have my next new pattern ready for testing!  

I'm in love with this hat!  It's such an easy knit, but by using some simple tricks with yarns, it comes out seeming much more sophisticated.  Kinda like the protagonist of Candide.  ;o)  A bit of a simpleton, but wanting to be more.  This is the first of a set of knits that will all feature a different character from Candide.  Well, here are the details:

Yarn used: 
Cascade Heritage (in 5681 Limestone) - fingering weight. Used for smallest size: 38g = 167yds. This is an exact amount, and I would err on having more than this.
Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (in 05 Lava) - considered a DK, but appears to be a very light DK. Either sport or DK would be fine, if you can get gauge. Used for the smallest size: 22g = 85yds. This is an exact amount and I would err on having more than this.

Needles: 
US 6 - 16”circ 
US 8 - 16”circ and dpns. 
Or size to obtain gauge.

Gauge:
20sts = 4” with both yarns held double on larger needle, in the round. Gauge was the same blocked and unblocked for me. :o)

This hat will come in a predicted 3 sizes. 18” (20”, 22”). Child/Teen (Small adult, Large adult). Exact sizes of hat: 17.5” (19”, 21”)

Testing will be performed in my ravelry group, here.
