Here it is, albeit late:
I weaved in the two tails on the Meret, today. It still needs washing and blocking (not sure how much I'll block it), but here it is, fresh of the needles.
I tried it on to see how it fits me, for future reference. It did turn out a little small for my tastes. The brim fits, but it's snug, and the body of the hat was much less loose and beret-like than I'd like. I think it would work well for someone with a smaller head, though. Maybe a child.
If I were to make this pattern again (and I might) for an adult, I'd go up to the large size and work at least two extra repeats. (This time, I worked one extra. Without that, I think it would look very odd. But then again, I don't usually like tight/small hat styles.)
Fit aside, I really enjoyed this pattern. It's just complicated enough to keep it from being boring-- great for knitting while you listen to TV or an audiobook. The new needles were great, too. I think I'm liking these sharp tips!
And here's the finished hat (but not a very good photo of it, I'm afraid):
I haven't washed or blocked it, yet.
