My friend Kathleen ordered this and it's knit with Spud and Chloe worsted, washable, wool and organic cotton. I LOVED working with this yarn!!! It has a lovely weight and doesn't have that wierd stretchy, rubbery feeling that some of the washable wools I've used have had. Maybe it's the cotton? I don't know, but I really like it and have added it to my list of favorite go-to yarns!
Kathleen had specified orange, blue, and green but "no wimpy pastels" and I think these hues did the trick perfectly. Spud and Chloe have some lovely colors to play with! I used their "Moonlight," "Turtle," and "Firecracker," and other than the rollup brim which was knit in "Moonlight," I used all three yarns for every row. This was not easy and I had my fabulous husband video tape me showing you how I handled all that craziness so that if you've not done much colorwork (like me) it might get you started with less frustration than I experienced (I started this over, twice). You can find that video here.
Here's a few more shots of the hat (which is sized approximately for a 6 month old who isn't born yet so no pictures on that baby's sweet noggin yet).
Oh my goodness!! I love the stripeys!
Without further ado, here's your pattern! Have fun, and as always, feel free to ask for help or clarification!
