The pattern, Scoops! by Ashley Solley, is available as a Ravelry download. I used Berroco Comfort in Seedling, Lidfors, Pimpernel and Aster on a size 8 16" circular needle and a set of 8 dpns. Stitches used are knit, purl, and SSK. I did attempt to make a pom pom for the top, but failed, yet again. So decided instead to make a tassel. I used this great little wood tray that was once my grandmother's. It was intended for this purpose, but it worked beautifully and I think the tassel adds to the hat's overall appeal.
I hope this is the rejuvenation of my mojo because I love making hats. I want to make hats. I need to make hats.
