Maggie's cap detail: five-scallop garter-stitch flower.

Maggie's cap with earflaps:
Yarn -- Knit Picks merino style in "Petal"
Gauge -- 5.5 stitches

Size -- about 19.5" circumference
Pattern --
hat: CO 108 stitches and knit in the round about 1.25", purl a round for visual interest, then continue knitting for about 3" more before beginning the decreases in multiples of 9. (I think I should have knitted a few more rounds before decreasing. We'll see if it fits my niece.) Decrease every other row until 9 stitches remain. Knit 3 stitches together 3 times until 3 stitches remain. Pull yarn through these stitches tightly and weave ends.
earflaps: CO 16 stitches, work 1" in garter stitch, before decreasing one stitch on each end every other row. Decrease to 4 stitches, knit 2 rows, then begin I-cord to desired length.
flower: from Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments.

What a great hat! I love it!

Totally off topic, but you asked on my blog where the poppy reserve is... here are the directions courtesy of Rob:

To get to the poppies from LA: take the 405 North, to the 5 North. Then take the 14 North...
Directions from website:
The Reserve is located 15 miles west of Lancaster on Avenue I. Take the Avenue I off ramp from the 14 Freeway, head west 15 miles to the Poppy Reserve.

As soon as you get off at Avenue I, there are signs to follow and it is super easy to find.

Hope you make it! It's definitely worth the trip.

Omigod how cute is THAT? awww! So adorable!!

I have come to the conclusion that everything is cuter with a knitted flower attached. True?

Thanks for the link to Zira (the monkey). I've had fun with making her and hope to have more monkeys in the near future. Come back and visit again soon.
