I didn't notice the difference in color until I photographed these. The purples are obviously different dye lots. It's not as noticeable in person.
This is a great instant gratification project. Using size 10.5 and 13 circular needles, I finished both in less than two days. It's not a free pattern, but worth the cost if you want something fast for a gift (or several gifts). If you're interested in the pattern or just want to check it out, click on the link above.
I wish I had someone else to model these. My photos would have been much better. Ireland can almost wear the pink one; our heads are similar in size.
I'm still working on the Scrump hat, and having trouble with the yellow stuff on top of his/ her head.
I don't know what to do about that. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
I really don't know why Ireland chose this for a hat, but I'll make anything she asks from me.
