Your hat is just precious!

If it were up to me, I'd go with "Not All Purple" to convey to the parents that the new baby will not always be crying (absent colic, of course!). It also describes the hat very well...

Just my most humble opinion,

Judy

Thank for the link. Now I see why purple. Whatever it's called, if parents can be helped to understand it's normal and will pass, that's wonderful.

Judy, I love that name. It's much more positive. Can I borrow it?

That is a good name.

Olha, did you do fair isle to make the flowers or did the yarn do that on it's own? It's so cute.

It's the yarn It's called Bernat Baby Jaquards Florals colourway Petunia. That's what makes it so interesting. And one ball would make about 9 or 10 hats depending on the colour distribution. I don't know if it's practical to write a yarn based pattern, but hey, why not?

Thanks a bunch! I think this naming case is closed

Also, you know how sometimes you come accross an expression (or in my case sometimes just learn a new word) and then see it everywhere?

This is from todays Yahoo! News:

The arrangement has its share of complications, but Mike told the Star they make it work. "It's not roses all the time," he said. "But you have to get along, that's just the way it is.

That's funny that you came across that article right now!

I've used that yarn before, but not that colorway. It's adorable! I think a pattern is fine with a specific yarn. If someone doesn't want to use it they can still make a hat that just looks different. The name can be applied to any purple hat.

The yarn and the color combination is so perfect. I'm delighted that you have a good name to go along with the truly precious hat.
