I do think this is a really cute hat, and I hope Megan likes it! Unfortunately, I did make a couple minor mistakes. As usual, I picked up stitches wrong when I was knitting the brim. The little stripe when I changed colors should be on the inside of the hat, but I actually like this extra little stripe so I don’t mind it being on the outside :) Although I knew I was supposed to switch to the smaller needles for the brim, I picked up the wrong needles and knit half the brim with the larger size.
I’m working on some squares for a baby blanket for Stacey’s niece. I must get these done this weekend since Amelia was born last week!! Hopefully I’ll have more pictures tomorrow :)

It looks fab! And I’m with you – I like the little extra stripe being visible on the outside. No doubt Megan will adore it!
Adorable! I like seeing the colour change to – I had assumed that was how it was meant to be – happy accident :o)
That hat is so cute Terrie! Great job!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering the contest.Good Luck!
I love that it is two-toned! This has been on my baby to do list for a while now!
Love the hat! The swirl is so cool!
Great hat. Now I want Dairy Queen.
but if it comes out of the drive through window with that color on top, I might have to think twice. Great color for a hat, but not so much for an ice cream topping.
LOVE the pompom!!
That turned out really cute! I love the colors and the pom pom is the perfect touch.
That hat came out so cool!! Love the pom pom!
Oh that is so cute! That pattern alone makes me want to buy the book!
I just finished knitting the ski cap but I have to do the brim. I know how to pick up stitches, but I don’t know where I’m suppuse to do it. Do you pick up fron both the right & left side? When I do this, I end up with the stipes looking strange, because 2 white stripes are sewn together and 2 blue stripes are sewn tog. What is the secret of finishing this hat??? Please help.
i love your cap you’ve done. It is exactly the idea i was looking for. I just want to ask you, if you can just give me any idea how to do it, how to start after the … right and left start. i would thank you so much.
