I have to say that this is such a cute hat. It’s knitted with some golden/orange yarn (most likely weight 4), as well as Caron One Pound in Forest Green (also weight 4). I used US 8 double pointed needles. It is sized for a newborn.
It was tricky knitting in the round on double pointed needles. I tried it on circulars, but the circumference wasn’t wide enough, so I had to go back to the DPN’s.
When it came time to tack down the leaf and stem, I kept the stem twisted so that I wouldn’t have to do an extra tendril.
