Being outdoors all day yesterday, it was actually quite nice to get inside at last. Although it's definitely spring, it is still quite chilly, and when windy, it's not at all warm. So a hat is still needed, at least for the kids. Still having a lot of energy from the lovely day outside, I made this hat. It's the greatest hat pattern, from a book as old as myself. My mother used to make me hats like this when I was a child. And I have made them for my kids. Now a cute baby girl I know will get to use this one. Purple silk next to the skin, flannel in middle, and cotton on the outside. Three layers, to avoid the wind to get to those ears. I only hope it fits!
