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*
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.

Cute hat!  And I love that she's playing with legos!

"I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear"

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.
