Unisex, reversible baby hat

This pattern was the happy accident of my attempt to modify one of the patterns I was making for this years "40 in 40" challenge.  I was using Marianna's Premature Unisex baby hat pattern and decided to work it in the round rather than on straight needles.  It wasn't until I began the decreases that I realized the difference between what I was making and the original pattern.  So this isn't so much an original creation, more a modification.  Still, I thought I would share with you in case you might like it too.
