buttoned beanie

So i found a use for one of my big buttons anyway...i sewed it onto this quickie-hat that i rustled up a couple of weeks ago to try out a pattern. I crocheted the crown using some pointers from this post and then knitted a thick band to sew on, to give a bit of contrast. The band overlapped onto itself and needed a little brooch or button or something.
Gill road-tested it for me on our lovely skive-work-day", when all the females of the family took the day off and went for a fabulous coastal walk and big tasty lunch....may we have many more of them!!! Doesn't she look great?!...that's the excitement of avoiding work!
