|Front view. I love those X stitches|
I used Peaches 'N Cream yarn which is very similar to the Sugar 'N Cream yarn by Lily. It is a very dense yarn and since this hat is crocheted holding 2 strands, this is a very thick hat. In fact, it is sitting on its side next to me and it is maintaining its shape! Originally, I did not add any embellishments to the hat, but some friends suggested it needed a little more. So, I added a band and crocheted 2 buttons to go on either side.
