Snowflake Hat

My friend made this hat and I really liked the design, especially the top pattern decreases.  My first attempt did not work out so well, other than I successfully used up some yarn.  It is sort of a cone head (too long) and the colors don't  really flatter each other.  

The pattern is Kathleen Taylor Picot Hem Stranded Snowflake Hat.  Yarn:  Cascade 220 Superwash.

The prototype
Much better

I like the second hat. The yarn is softer (Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash) and the colors are prettier together. I used a different edge and the snowflake disappeared.
