What materials did you use? Scraps of worsted and bulky yarn.

What are you most proud of? How loved these hats have been. The mother of the original recipients sent me a picture of the two of them (ages 1 and 3) wearing these wool hats with shorts and tee-shirts on a 90 degree day! Now that's love.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it! Especially with the color choices. You can really get into playing with how one color fades into the next. And finding ways to slip in those little scraps of yarn; you know the ones that you have no idea what to do with, but you couldn't stand to get rid of. This, this is where to use them! It can be kind of addictive.

Hi Lorna, If you go into the post with the pattern and scroll down to the comments, someone else asked about i-cord as well and I posted links to a tutorial and youtube video which should explain everything. Please let me know if you need any further assistance!
