An Even Smaller Hat

This hat is for nephew, who is still tiny and as a boy, probably too macho for a pink berry hat (although I havnt met him yet, so I am guessing). The pattern is by Ulli S. Shibuya and knit in some RYC cashcotton 4ply I snagged in the John Lewis sale for silly money. I was trying to be smart and get coloured garter stitch stripes, but it didnt work out quite as I hoped. I also couldnt find a small enough bowl or large enough dolls head to model it on, just a plastic toy cup, hence its cake-like appearance. I dont think C has a cake-shaped head, so it should look better on him. I hope.
