Baby Hat, pattern finished!

Remember this project?
I made this a couple of years ago, and posted it here on my blog. It is one of my designs included in the 2007 Crochet Pattern-a-day Calendar. But I didn't know for sure if it was accepted then, since I only submitted a photo of the project. So I was surprised that it was included, and they just repeated the instructions for the baby mittens pattern, which was also featured there. Here's how it looked in the CPAD:

Now at last, I finished writing the pattern! I had to find some inspiration in making another hat, so that I could write the pattern clearly. The inspiration came when a nice lady emailed and asked for the pattern, saying that she wanted to make it for a baby gift this September.
I also made some improvement on the pattern, and I think the sizing is more accurate now.
Then I decided to add something new to the hat I just made - a crocheted ribbon.

Row 1: With the same size hook used for the hat, take the contrasting color (pink), ch 75. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and on each ch across. Cut off.
Row/rnd 2: Attach main color (white) at opposite end, ss on 1st st, (ch 1, ss on next st) repeat all around the top and bottom of sc row. Join to the 1st st of this round. Cut off.
Weave in ends.
Tie into a bow and sew it on the hat band.

Update: I just found a free pattern for a cute pair of maryjane booties by Liz, made from thread. It looks like a perfect match for this baby hat.
