Posey Hat

I have really been getting into colorwork, and I wanted to make this hat (13406 Child’s Hat by Dale of Norway / Dale Design);

but I couldn’t locate a copy of the pattern, so I attempted a copy with a loose interpretation of the colorwork portion for my daughter. I found a really good deal on some Alpaca Love (80% wool, 20% alpaca) at Michael's the other day - a worsted weight yarn. I cast on 100 stitches witht the light pink on size 5 circular needles for the p1k1 ribbing (13 rows), did two purl rows with Fern for the accent, and then switched to size 6 circular needles for the colorwork portion/crown.. finishing up with DPN’s. It’s a good fit for both my 9 year old,

and my 3 year old :)

Both of them have been vying for it.. but this picture of my daughter convinced me that is should belong to her :)
