This hat named for his color, presse froid from Julie Asselin, is my interpretation from a hat seen in french movie "Les tribulations d'une caissire". While I was watching the movie, I couldn't stop looking at this hat and trying to understand how to do it myself. Then, I picked up my needles, yarn and note pad. Et voila! If you're working with smaller needles and yarn, it makes a wonderful hat for kid :) Enjoy!
