Kid's Fruit Cap

I am currently trying to make the Ann Norling “Kid’s Fruit Cap”, the Strawberry one. It is going to be for a newborn so I am wanting to use cotton or a cotton/silk or cotton/rayon blend yarn. My local yarn shop suggested the Berroco Touche or the Classic Elite Provence, however niether of these have a green that is dark enough for the stem/seeds. I was hoping someone out there had made this pattern before and could help me find some yarn with a good kelly green.


Have you tried Sugar & Cream? I think I saw a good “strawberry-top” green in it recently.
