Oh. Dear me.
I took the hat with me to babysit the kids and let me tell you. there is nothing sadder than a 5 year olds face when he sees his hat and does not like it.
Grandma needs more orange. And luckily, with all this weeding through the stash, I found some solid orange that will work very nicely with these other colours to knit 2 x 2 for the main part of the hat. And red. Apparently I forgot the red that he wants.
Knitting for a 5 year old is hard.
