My aunt's having a baby in august, so, of course, I immediately thought, "I'll knit a hat!" Anyway, I think the colors can work for a boy or girl- and maybe the little one will get some use out of it in the winter. Smiley The earflaps give it a bit of a swim-cap type of look, I think. Smiley

Because of a general baby shortage, here's the hat (stuffed with socks- it's not nearly as lumpy on a head) modeled by the vacuum. No frontal photos came out, but I think you get the general idea.
Flash, no flash.

I found fair isle loads more fun than dpns. (Funny story, actually... the fair isle strip was conceived to cover a strange lumpy part of an otherwise perfect hat where I dropped about 15 stitches. ick.) I added a little crochet trip and the strings are chains. I also stitched a starburst on top for kicks. Fair isle chart  here, to get a better idea of the whole thing. http://www.jessica-tromp.nl/breisteken_knitting_stitches/fair-isle-norwegian-42.gif

Thanks! I like the star too. I was afraid it was a little weird, but I guess not.  Smiley

yeah, I guess having things on top of hats isn't that unusual- the worm on top of lasandri's hat is totally awesome!

MMMmmm... summer.
