Here's the finished hat:
It's blue corduroy with light blue top stitching. Blue matches almost everything for boys...
But the best part is that it's reversible! I did a red plaid pattern for the other side.
One of the reasons I made the hat was because in TX the weather changes so much and you never know when those 70 degree days will hit - like yesterday :). We wait for the kids to get out of school everyday on our picnic blanket on front lawn (unless it's too cold, or too hot). I figured I would try to keep his bald little head covered from all that awesome sun. It worked really well too!
If you are interested in the pattern it is super easy with great detailed instructions! I finished it in one night after the kids had gone to bed. I highly recommend the pattern and I'm looking forward to making more hats!
Insider info: I also know she is in the finishing up another pattern ... looking forward to that one too :).
