There was just enough yarn for the hat - about a yard left over. I followed an excellent pattern called Whorl. It's well-written, a quick and easy pattern with just enough interest to keep it from being boring. I expect that I'll make another Whorl hat someday.
Yarn contents: 35% Superwash Merino, 50% Polypropylene and 15% Nylon. It's a DK weight, 100 yards in the 50 gram skein.
The yarn is not terribly soft, feels rather plastic-y. I expect that's down to the polypropylene content, but it's not unpleasant. The yarn is now discontinued and I was glad that there was enough yarn for the hat and that I didn't run out.
To finish off the hat I added a furry pompom that came from The Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins, Colorado. Alyssa loves anything soft and her hands went immediately to the pompom:
Later, out on the playground, her hat was pink:
