I found an online version of the Ann Norling style fruit caps, and gave it a try yesterday. This was my first attempt at fair isle, to do the leaves, and I found it hard to keep the tension right. I also made the hat too deep (it's rolled up extra to fit Teagan in the photo) and I didn't add the seeds yet.

Here is a photo of the inside, to show the stranding:

I actually prefer the apple hat I made before. It comes out neater at the top and is easier to make, so I might stick with them for now.
