My friend knows that she is having a little girl late spring...
I used plain ole acrylic.. I don't know the brand- it was part of a skein that I've had forever and the paper band was no longer w/ the yarn.
The color: A soft lavender- no matter what it looks like in the photo!
The pattern is from the book: The Elegant Knitter and the name of the pattern is: A Soft Baby Hat
I had to make some adjustments- because it became clear that my yarn was a little thicker than what they had used in their pattern..
