I made this for the pre-teen daughter of a friend. I wanted it to be appropriately girly.

Did I succeed? Smiley

It consists of the most basic stocking net stitch hat pattern (made up) and the addition of simple crochet flowers from this page: http://www.woolcrafting.com/crochet-flower-pattern.html

What do you think? Thanks for looking!

Adorably girly. I am sure she will love it.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

I think it's the perfect amount of girly - cute but not over the top Smiley. I'd love to wear it and my pre-teen years are far gone!

The colors are great and I really love the added flower/button touch. The border is lovely too! Did you just add in a second strand for that portion?

That's exactly was I wondering! Totally loving the border/edge and yep, I definitely think it would look great on a pre-teen  Smiley

Thanks for your comments! It's great to get some feedback. I'm currently the only knitter in my social circle and it's hard to find anyone to bounce ideas off of.

The band is just 4 rows (I think) of staggered alternating pk repeats and I did indeed add a second strand for the band only. I just used some light pink crochet cotton I had laying around. I'm glad you all like them! I thought it was kind of a neat effect.

Happy Holidays and many thanks!
