I made this for Millamia challenge

    Finished! I added little picot edging in crochet and sewed in all the ends.
    My husband said I needed better photos, so here they are. No child available, so had to use my model head (about same size as child).
    Can actually be worn either side, but I prefer the V-shape stitches.

    This is a fine cotton yarn and I wanted to make something that would show off the yarn and the stitches. One colour would just be boring, so I used 4. I am into making ponchos lately, but haven't made any really small ones. Hoping this works out when I put it all together. Will add more photos soon (now added). Hope to finish by 30 Sep.(Done!)
    It's a long time since I have worked with such small needles (3.50 mm) and I was surprised by how quickly it grew.
    I am going to add an edging, probably crocheted in the dark green, but haven't worked this out yet. Will be doing that tonight. I used a simple little picot edge (couple rows SC followed by picot (3 chain, 3 slip stitches).
