Turn A Square

Pattern: Turn A Square by Jared Flood
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light 'aurelian' (stash)
Needles: US #4 circular/dpn's

The best way to get a focused picture of Little Man's new hat was to strap him in the car and hand him a pop tart. Fantastic hat pattern (which goes without saying since it is Mr. Flood after all). To create a child's size, I cast on and followed the pattern using a lighter weight yarn and knitting 4 inches before beginning the decreases. This is a bit too wide in the brim, but he'll grow into it. Especially if he keeps eating those pop tarts.

Amazing how much this child looks like you! And how much his hat looks like a hat. A great hat. A hat among hats. I like it!
