My daughter Eiley requested a purple hat.  I didn't want it to be the typical run of the mill hat, but I also didn't want it to be too challenging that I'd never finish it.  So, I "designed" an old skool ski hat like my Grampy wore way back when.  I used Cascade 220 Quattro and size 8 16" Addis and size 8 DPNs.  Eiley loves it Wink even if it's close to 90 today and she's wearing a Speedo LOL





*please bear in mind this is my first time sharing one of my patterns*
Materials:
any worsted weight yarn will do, I used Cascade 220 Quattro 1 hank and had a little over a golf ball sized ball left over even after the pompom.

Size 8 16" circular needles and size 8 DPNs

CO 96 sts with circular needle (switch to DPNs when it gets too tight), join for working in the round ~ do not twist Wink , and place marker so you know where you began.

Thanks!  Once you know the general principles for hats, it's really not difficult to whip up your own design Wink

As for the legos, all 4 kids are lego obsessed lately.  We're talking about doing a stop-motion video for youtube. . . time will tell.

Oh.  If there's any interest, I'd be more than happy to post the pattern here.

Love the hat and your daughter is absolutely adorable!

I bet she will be the envy of her friends with a hat that is truly an original (since mom designed and made it!)

Love it.  Reminds me of Dr Seuss (obviously a big plus)

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
