Maja hat

I like all of Johannes patterns and decided to start with the Maja hat.
I like the Zauerball yarn in the pink/white/green shades - so I bought it.

The yarn is definitely not my colors, but in combination with grey it's wearable. (I think it would be even better with dark brown.) The pattern was fun to knit and I chosed the larger size since I do not like my hats to be too tight.

I just should have remembered that my head is still rather small and next time I'll try the smaller size.

Sprangeled cap or hat with tinsel (dvs paljettmössa)

How to translate "Mössa med paljetter"?
At Syfestivalen in November I bought some yarn to make this cap to my daughter N.

At a first glance - pink/orange yarn with "paljetter" I thought - how tacky can yarn be?

Then knowing my N, she would love a cap in this yarn. I continued shopping some pink soft wool and here it is. The pattern is based on a cap in this book.
