That's so funny---I just made one yesterday almost exactly like that (a little more teal) using your Rose Hill Hat as a model!
I think I'll try this pattern and see which I like better.

I just saw that hat on Ravelry last night. This is a sign that I must make this to match my new scarf! Did you use double pointed needles? If not, how do you knit in the round without dpn's or circulars?

You are so pretty. I see where your girl gets her lovely auburn hair. And a cap in an hour; I could go for that!

It's very cute.. & I thought I would be the first to tell you how great you look in blue. :) Thanks for sharing ALL the details (yarn, needles)... I'm really bad at getting it all right. Very helpful!
