This winter Little A & Z each wanted one too...
Rather than refiguring the pattern, I decided to crochet using a double strand of yarn.
I mixed the blue and green with my favorite charcoal grey and came up with beautiful jewel two tones...
That didn't match any of their winter hats...
I designed a coordinating hat too.
Would you like the pattern?
OK...here it is:
A Child's Hat toddler size 2-4
I used Paton's Classic Wool in Royal Blue & Mercury and Emerald & Mercury
K hook and N hook
Using K hook and single strand of Mercury.

One final note...
9 out of 10 dentists recommend using your toothbrush at least 3 times a day*...
but, hey, this boy adores his toothbrush...
so, whatever works!
*not a real statistic...I made that up...remember those 9 out of 10 dentist commercials? Trident, I think?!
