This weekend I whipped up the Nuthatch Ski Hat from 'Colorwork Creations'. This pattern is the main reason I bought this book. I used the stars and diamonds pattern from the Reindeer pattern in the book. The hat pattern is generic and any of the elements from the different patterns (Chickadee, Cardinal, Dragon, Reindeer, Grosbeak) can be interchanged.
I used Turmeric, Delta, Heather Asphalt, White and Navy colourways.
If I were to make this again, I'd eliminate the top band of stars and diamonds and go right to the decrease pattern for the crown. That would make it snugger to the top of my head. I'm debating on whether I should make a pompom for it.
