There are so many great things about the Poppy hat, by Justine Turner:
-It is adorably girly, like it was made for tea parties:
-The pattern includes instructions for 7 sizes (ages newborn to 10) and three yarn weights (sport, DK, and worsted). And, the pattern is free!
-The hat is fun to make -- challenging enough to be interesting (with short rows and a provisional cast on) but easy enough to work on while you binge watch Orphan Black (I am obsessed)
Here is my version:
The short rows are unfortunately quite visible -- turns out I should have read the purl bee short row tutorial more carefully from beginning to end, in which case I would have known how to hide the wrap & turn stitches. Oh well, next time.
