Pill Box With Woven Scarf

I made this scarf awhile back.  Since I didn't have a hat to go with it, I put it away and forgot about it.  Then my daughter made some really great thick lumpy yarn and gave it to me.  It was just the right colors, so I got the scarf out and made this pill box style hat to go with it.
This is the first woven scarf I've posted on my website, so I'm not sure how it will go over.  Generally I only make woven scarves as custom orders.  They are quite laborious to set up, but after that are fun to make.  I use a small table loom which I can set in my lap while working.  I enjoy the process but doubt I'll ever get into learning how to use one of the larger, more complex looms.

The lumpy yarn at the top of the hat is made from wool, mohair, and silk, and the gray band is undyed Jacob wool. It's all crocheted. This style of hat is meant to fit snugly and cover just part of the ears.
