This pattern is FINALLY live. I came up with the original pattern design while I was playing with some yarn on a trip to California in January. That was knit up twice. It was a sound pattern...but something just wasn't quite right about it. It was inching towards spring at the time, so I decided to put it on the back burner and wait for the fall.

In July, my daughter and I visited a yarn shop in Astoria, Oregon. She fell in love with a thick pink yarn and asked me to knit her a hat with a crown (seriously, the child thinks I can just come up with a pattern so easily....it's like ordering what she wants for breakfast!!!!) So I knit up a design that was pretty cute...but was missing something. Then in hit me....if I combined the two patterns....it would make for a pretty cool hat!!

So that is how the Dawn hat finally came to be. I didn't realize how many times I altered this pattern until I looked in my pattern file on my computer. There are MANY versions of the Dawn hat in there...most of them have been renamed "Don't use this one!" hahahaha

I hope you enjoy knitting this pattern! The test knitter feedback was great and I know I enjoyed knitting all the versions as well! Happy Knitting

I have been on the hunt for the perfect wool wash. I had pretty much made my mind up (because this one smelled like HEAVEN!!!!!) Then I watched the Battle of the Wool Washes by Ewe University. I picked my team before the battle started and I cheered them on!

I picked my team before the battle started and I cheered them on!

But wouldn't you know...they just did not stack up on game day! A wool wash I knew nothing about did fantastic....so I sought out to find it.
