FO: Second Andean colorwork hat
I finished this up at about 1:30 AM this morning, in plenty of time to have it done for the KO! I did one first for my 2 1/2 yo and this one is for my 5 yo. I'm not so afraid of colorwork now! I had to change the finished size to fit my 5 yo, so what I did was change it from a flat knitted pattern and did it in the round instead and used the next bigger size needles. It came out just about right, and my colorwork is a bit more even on this one than the first as well.

When I see that, I think that I really should learn how to do colorwork. It looks so daunting though...
