Ugly baby hat

Ugly baby hat, originally uploaded by wildjinjer.

Presley's mother gave me the little yellow baby hat on the left; it's one he wore when he was tiny-tiny. I love the pattern, but it's acrylic yarn, so I decided to copy it in nicer yarn. In the middle, you can see the yarns I choose. On the right, you can see the hat in progress.

Maybe she thinks it's too ugly?

The hat came out so-so. The melon-colored yarn is too floppy for the style, and I think the original knitter changed needle sizes for the neck band, which I didn't do. All in all, the original has a much nicer shape.

I'll post another photo when she get's old enough to actually wear it.
