Hmmm...I just made this hat last night but I found it on another site (a blog, actually) and the lady said that this is her own personal design. The date of the pattern listing on her blog is 5 years after the date of Pat's listed above. Coincidence? http://vallieskids.blogspot.com/2009/06/olivias-butterfly.html

Coincidence?

 

Probably considering it's just a simple DC beanie with a butterfly stitch at the bottom.
