ok, now it looks like this:
Well, that is the top of it. R is modeling it for me. It took almost the whole ball. I had to shorten it because I thought I would run out. Uncle D says it fits well. That's good in my book. The pattern is from Lion Brand. It is called "Ellen's knit hat". It came out very nice. I really like how the crown makes that pinwheel. I made it on sz7 bamboo dbps. It says to do the sides to 8" then start the crown, I only did 61/2" then the crown. Still, it came out very nice. Very soft too.
