2 Canadian hats!

I finished the second hat.

Not a great shot for colour, but it shows the hat! Very simple, cast on 112 st, do 1x1 rib, striping every 4 rows. Run out of the gold stuff, carry on with the green. I like the decreasing I did at the top:

Paired decreases on alternate rows, initially 4 lots around the row, then upped to 8 lots. Gives it the nice star look.

Oh, and I had a great model...

That's probably the best shot for colour, but I think the hat is a bit big for the bear!
