It’s finished! The pattern gives 2 variations for the top and 2 variations for the band; it comes in 7 sizes (baby to age 6+) and is knit in the round in Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort (a wonderful DK-weight organic cotton/wool blend).

Gomphidius Violet is a very quick knit-and-purl design with very predictable repeat patterns; the picture shows the swirling triangle wedges of the top and the Staggered Rib band.

Gomphidius Swath sports purl stitch arcs on the top; it features a Bamboo Stitch band (close-up pic).
