Well, I used a diffent yarn but similar in make up to cash soft (or so the lady at the yarn store said so--they didn't have cashsoft in the color I wanted). It isn't as tight as I would like, but it will work. I want to make another (cream yarn with light green beads to match my green coat) using the cash soft. Obviously it is too big for my daughter, but it fits fine on me. Unfortunately the beads are too close to the yarn color, but you can still see them.

I love the subtle use of beads, I think it looks fantastic. That pattern is on my list for when fall/winter comes along.

From the smile on your daughter's face she may not give it back to you. She looks precious. I really like the colors and the hat looks great!

Wow :shock: That's beautiful! I love the color and I like that the beads are similar to the yarn; they give some more texture. I hope I can find that pattern--love it!

Thanks gals! It was such an easy pattern.

Quite easy actually. You string them on before you start knitting. The first bead, I think I did wrong, but the second one, I realized how to "push it through to the front" and it was so easy after that. I can't wait to make another.
