Here you are

A lovely chapeau for your pretty head. If you have a skein of yarn that just wants to show off its color - this one's for you. :) It's simple, big, warm and squishy. Pattern link opens pdf and follows the pictures. If you knit it, please let me know!

(A samara is one of those helicoptery seed pods that fall from maple trees each year. I remember being a kid and wading through gobs of them on the street - when they turn brown, they are beautiful. This yarn reminds me of them.)

Maple leaf helicopters (didn't know the true name until now) are one of my absolute favorite things in the world.

Very nice! We used to split them at the pod and stick them on our noses. ;)
Great hat!

Beautiful yarn and a lovely girl! My daughter collects those seeds in her pockets every time we leave the house. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the great hat pattern. I'm printing it for my sister. We're getting together to dye some yarn and she's looking for a project for that yarn. It'll be her first knitting project! Thanks again!
