Thank you! I do plan to offer this in my store. The reason I haven't so far is that the pattern was written for bulky yarn and I only have worsted yarn in stock. So I used two strands of worsted when crafting the one I pictured, but I found it to be a bit too stiff (although thicker and probably warmer) and not cushy enough for my taste (although to be fair DH did not agree with me and I tend to be a bit sensory when it comes to hats ). Long story short, I don't have any yarn picture choices to offer when it comes to bulky yarn so I've been trying to decide what to do.

Would you prefer to have it made in a bulky yarn that would make it super soft and cushy? Or would you prefer it to be thicker and warmer (the yarn is still soft, just not cushy)? You'll be the first in my poll

ETA: Upon further thought I really just want to offer this crafted with bulky yarn. So what I'll do is put in a link to Lion Brand Homespun Yarn. I can get that yarn locally and will buy it as the item is ordered since I only use bulky yarn for this particular item.

Here is the link to the colors:
Homespun Yarn

And I'll add the listing on my Etsy store No pressure, I'm just glad you asked about it so I would focus and decide what to do with the hood and scarf combo!

Custom orders finished last night:

A red and white striped beanie to be worn for a little one's first birthday party - a Dr. Seuss theme!



And I absolutely LOVE the colors my customer chose for this hat: blueberry and nutmeg
