...And this came out:
I have to say, I pleased as punch with this little hat. Len's sister had twins a couple of weeks ago (a girl and a boy), so this is for the girl (Madelyn Mae).
I made it out of the yarn left over from Waving Laces, Louet Gems Pearl (Aqua). 96 stitches on #2 needles, picot hem, and an eyelet pattern from Barbara Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Seriously. I'm in love with this hat!
I'll be using some leftover yarn for the boy's (Max) hat as well. The Harley riding, tatooed father has requested a pom-pom. Obviously I have to make a pom-pom.
