I had planned only the pink hat for her this year, but I went along with it because days later, she is still asking for her yellow hat.
The big ball of yellow was Inca, from FibraNatura. I made a baby blanket for Carter out of it and it was a great kiddie yarn. It held up well under ordinary washer and dryer care. It would make a great hat. But what pattern for a chunky yarn?
I've been working with what I have pattern-wise, so it quickly became clear that it needed to be an aviator hat.
I am not sure of the buttons I have used yet. They are small and most people finish them off with big buttons. I choose little dinosaurs because we growl and play scarey dinosaur all the time. Perhaps some embroidery around the little dinosaurs? That feels wrong. Good as it is I think.
But a hat is a hat and that is that.
