I knit this hat for my mom's birthday, which happens to be today. Happy birthday ma! I've been making hats for everyone for birthdays this year. The pattern came from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, was quick, and includes directions for multiple sizes. The green yarn I used is acrylic (I know!) courtesy of Vanna White, I kid you not. Her yarn has the best colors and is super soft and inexpensive.
I also made Julia a hat out of the same pattern, embelishing it with some yarn flowers. I started with the same Vanna green, then used a different acrylic that I chose for the color alone.
