Another Gift Down! Children's Version of the Margaret Hat. [crochet pattern]

So a couple of my christmas presents this year are geared toward couplings: Mother/Daughter, Husband/Wife, and it's been really fun modifying and creating new patterns that complement eachother!  For this specific pairing, I took a pattern that I had found online and made it for the mother, and then I modified it to make a pattern that would fit a child.  You can find the mother's pattern at the Lion Brand website by following this link: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80752AD.html?noImages=.  Below, find the Children's pattern!
