I did end up making some of those cute Snow Blossom Hats from Made By Rae for my own kids after I made four of them for the preschool winter hat drive (two baby, two kid size). I decided to really follow the tutorial on Little Sister's hat, and I even made it to match her winter coat since I had the right colors of fleece.
Here's Little Sister's hat:
And here's Made By Rae's photo from the tutorial.

See, I can follow directions when I really try!
Her sock-cuff mittens even match! Now I've got to make her a matching scarflet. It's a necessity.
Edited: I made more of these this year! I am a machine! You can see my new ones in this post.
