I didn't want Big Sister to feel left out, so after finding out what her favorite colors were, I set out on the task to knit a matching hat for her. I'm very pleased with how this hat turned out. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry to get the hat in the mail and sent off before we left for Colorado to see my sister. I hate sending things off or gifting things without first taking pictures to document what I've created. The light in my kitchen was fading and so the picture quality is poorer than I would have liked. The pictures do not do the colors justice, in my opinion.
I knit this hat using KnitPicks Swish DK in Petal and KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Tulip. Petal is the lighter pink while Tulip is the darker pink. In these pictures, Tulip almost appears to be a purple of some kind. In person, Tulip is a very brilliant, vibrant color - perfect for a little girl! When I was ordering yarn I was afraid of picking 2 colors that wouldn't mesh well together, but once I got the project started, my fears were relieved.
