Odessa by Grumperina has been on my to-knit list for a while. I had the perfect yarn too, Colinette Cadenza in Fire. The colors look pretty neon here, but they're not quite that bright. The color range was from dark red/black bits to a nice orange and hot pink.
It was supposed to be for me, and I was ready to cast on earlier this year, and then I found out about my friend T., who needs hats now and pretty urgently. It turned out nicely, and the pattern was really well written and organized - which is exactly what one might expect from Grumperina.
I love the swirling ribs on top. I hope she likes it.
