The pink yarn is a bit of "soft Baby" by Bernat (or is it softee baby?). It does have a sheen to it. It was leftover from something that my dd had made. The white is a bit of Stork cotton. This was a stash busting project.
The little flowers were made to cover up the jogs in the striping since I knit the hat in the round.
Thank you for your kind comments.
