The hat was made during a seminar in gastroenterology at Ilsetra, Øyer, hence the name.
Do you like it? You can vote for it here. The competition has been going on for a while, some hats already have several thousand votes, so I do need some help! You can vote, and you can upload your own hat, till the end of the Championships, which will be on the 6th of March.

The hat is knitted in Finullgarn on needles 4 mm. It was a fun knit. I think if you omit one pattern repeat, you can get a nice beanie type hat. I'll finish the charts and share them for free as soon as I get the time.
Edited to tell my non-Norwegian readers that "STEM" means vote. And you can vote four times a day till the end of the championships :-)
