Falling Leaf Hat
Here is my newest creation and I have to say am really pleased with it. I followed this Green leaf baby hat pattern to start off with but used DK so I cast on 72 stitches for the newborn size on 4.5mm needles. I was tired when I was finishing it and misread the decreases part of the pattern and missed out the plain knit rounds. It meant this one had a founded instead of the more pointed top but I think I actually prefer it. Its up for sale in my Etsy shop and I'm already thinking about some other colourways!
I think it looks sort of elf-like, don't you think? I really want to try it in some variegated autumny yarn!
