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.
