This is so stinkin' cute. Could be for a boy or a girl (this would be amazing in really girly color like hot pink). It's accented with two buttons on top and one on the neckstrap. Someone came into the store last week with this knit up looking for buttons and we fell in love! There's also a non-cabled version here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/regan---aviator-hat
RISPEN is a female beanie worked in two-color brioche stitch. A bottom up hat featuring a botanically-inspired allover pattern of frozen trees and leafs. Details like the German twisted cast on, seamless transitions from ribbing and brioche pattern and shaping crown decreases yield a female accessory. Perfect pattern to gift yourself or to warm the ones you love.
