Second try for a winter hat

When I first saw the Little Heaume hat at Posie Gets Cozy I knew I had to try it for Es.  Her hats are always riding up, so the under the chin strap seemed perfect.  My first try was much too small, so back to the yarn store.  We couldn’t find the same color so Es picked out this dusty pink from Cascade 220.  Being a new knitter I had to watch a lot of videos to learn some new stitches, but the directions were clear and kindly included links to videos of the trickier stitches.  The final result:

The chin strap drove Es crazy at first, but now she seems to like it.  At least on days where I can convince her to wear a hat in the first place.
