This is what I have come up with - it is a unisex hat that can be assembled in 2-different ways.
Just like the Winter Pixie Bonnet - this hat is worked flat. It is a very simple and quick project and it is easy enough for beginners.
The pattern includes instructions to make the tassels.
I used a pom pom maker to make the pom pom on the 2nd hat - and Darla's hat is a series of long braids (in 2-colours) all braided around the upper corners of the square hat. Super simple and super quick - and warm! Each one has taken me less than 1-hour to make and assemble. The braids on Darla's took a little more time - but no more than 30 minutes extra and she insisted on braids :)
I will be sending out a call for testers using the Pattern Tester's Newsletter in the next 48-hours.
If you are wondering about the Winter Pixie Bonnet, here's a picture:
It is available for purchase through my Ravelry store.
