Is the speckle effect from the yarn or did you do something fancy?  Either way, would you mind divulging what you did?  My sister is pregnant and wants a "strawberry" hat, so your modification would be perfect.

It looks fantastic!

pluto-

i just followed the instructions for the baby hat as written in the book!  Easy Peasy... the yarn i bought was bright pink with these little light pink pom poms built right in!

then, when it came time to put the crown on the double pointed needles, i just changed the color to that sherbet chenille.

that's it!

i'm definitely making another one.  i bought 2 skeins of yarn for this project and could easily make another 2 hats at least.

It's pretty easy to make a strawberry pattern on a hat.

Just carry along a contrasting color of yarn (green, yellow, and black are all very strawberry seed-ish) in one row every inch or so, and knit one stitch in the CC every inch or so (e.g. every 8th stitch)  Make sure alternating rows with seeds start the seeds in different places so they don't all line up and you get a pattern that is something like this
------V------V------V------

Your hat DID turn out frickin' cute!  That one kind of looks like a stawberry already.

Question--when I started this hat last night (first time using circular needles), I found that about 1" down the knits twist once on themselves (more that just curling because it is stockinette stitch, but actually like making a loop, if that makes sense?).  I tried to avoid "twisting the stitches" like the directions say and don't know what happened...  Does anyone know if this can be repaired when I change to dpns or if I should just start over?!  
Thanks!

if you had twisted the stitches, you'd end up with a moebius strip, something with only one surface.  if that's really what you did you have to start over. to avoid twisting the stitches when you join in the round, lay your work on a table and make sure that all of the cast on stitches are pointing inward

i'm guessing that although it looks all loopy and twisted, it's probably not?  can you post a pic so we can see what's a-going on???

Yeah, I had twisted the stitches like a dummy and, since they were all connected in a circle I couldn't untwist them without starting the whole thing over.  Boo hoo.  The good thing is that it is a small project and, after getting my yarn unknotted, I was able to knit one up the next day!  I was so very happy at having made something hat-like, even though I don't have a baby to put it on--does anyone have a spare?!
