I didn't quite follow a pattern for this particualr hat as much as I tried to fudge it. So the top has a 'bump' in one corner. But it looks absolutely darling on my 3 yo dd. I have gotten better w/ my hats since this first one.
The colors for the poncho came out much nicer than on the hat. It must have been a different 'lot' because the poncho colors were more 'pearlish' than on the hat.
