FO: Baby hat gift

I knitted a gift hat for a neighbor's granddaughter. The pattern is an adaptation of the Tea Cozy Crown Elf Hat from the Charmed Knits book by Alison Hansel. I used up almost one skein of some leftover di.Ve' Zenith yarn, which is a washable extrafine merino wool. Since I only had one color, I threw in a band of texture stitches. I also decided to add a pom-pom to the top, although I think the pom-pom might be a bit large in proportion to the hat. The Other Half says: "Don't worry, it'll make the kid stronger -- she'll have to hold up her pom-pom".

I love the addition of the pom-pom. Any smaller and it might have been dwarfed by the top seams of the hat. Very cute!
