My hat obsession started when my five year old was a few months old and no other hat fit correctly.  Anywho, Harper is wearing a lot of browns/pinks/blues etc this year, so I came up with this for her fall 2010 hat.  And lol, even if she could fit into last year's hat, it's boring to use the same one all the time.   Grin

And don't let the cuteness fool you.  She's a total pain in the butt!

This is so weird... in my Never Not Knitting page-a-day calendar (by the Yarn Harlot!) today's entry is about how all babies look great in a brown hat!

You did a great job on this!  I particularly like the scalloped edging. ^_^

Cutest pain in the butt ever! I love the hat, too, especially the scalloped edge. Any tips/pattern on how you did that? I'm a new crocheter and I'm working on a Brobee hat (Yo Gabba Gabba) for my daughter.

That is one gorgeous baby, pain or not. I'd also like to add that your hat is beautiful also. I love the scalloped edge and the flower gives it the perfect finishing touch. I used to love to make these hats for my nieces. They are too old for them now, they are into fairies and princesses. Wink

The scalloping is just groups of six DC's in one of the DC spaces in the previous rows.  I think it was shell (6dcs) skip next dc space, sl st in next dc space, skip next dc space and then a shell all the way around.  This prevents the shell from being too bunched or too stretched out.  I like scalloping like this on older babies' hats.  For newborns, I do chain scalloping so it isn't so harsh but still gives that feminine edging.  (I make a ridiculous amount of hats)
