Pattern: Child's Cowboy Hat. Very easy, quick and fun.
Yarn: Samos Novita, colorway 300, 50% cotton and 50% acryl, kindly donated by my Secret Pal. I like it a lot -- it is very soft, slightly flexible, not splitty at all. I wish we had it in our Dutch yarn stores, but apparently it's a typically Finnish yarn brand...
Hook: 5mm, aluminium.
Modification: I added a row of slip stitches to the upper border of the hat, to make the top concave rather than convex (looks more cowboy-ish).
Still want to add: an applique felt star for my little sheriff; a decorative but simple ribbon and another ribbon to tie the hat to my playful boy's head :-)
It looks great on the recipient -- who is, at this moment, taking his afternoon nap. Thank you, Secret Pal, and I hope you like the way I used the yarn you sent me :-)
