Well I have been testing a few patterns lately so here are some of the results.  This is a new cap that Etaria at  is testing for sale.  This will be part of her Rugged Mountain Series that she has created four scarves and now matching caps.  Unforunately I used a dark brown wool ease of so the pattern doesn't show up well in the pictures.

Thank you for posting the hat pattern source. You know, I'm always amazed at how a change of color or yarn can make a pattern interesting to me or not. I had seen this pattern the other day, and for some reason didn't like it. (Maybe it was the camo yarn, I don't know.) But seeing this same hat crocheted in pink and in purple ... Wow! What a difference! Plus your yarn seems to have a sheen to it. Needless to say, I went back and printed the hat pattern. I'm so glad that I saw your choice of colors. Beautiful!
