Granny square dress and hat

I made this little dress for a lovely little girl called Milla. A nice design that will work well alone during the hot days of summer, but I also think it will look nice on top of tights and a turtleneck when the weather cools in autumn. 
The dress is crochet in 100% cotton yarn. You start by joining a ring of granny squares before adding on stripes and with untill desired size.
ending with a nice green and orange edging.
 The hat is made in the same way, starting with a ring of granny squares.
Pattern from Sandnes catalogue no 0706, pattern no 10.
Size 2 yrs
Yarn: Mandarin petit 100% cotton
Hook: 2.5mm
Notes: A quick and fun project to make, but the yarn tends to split which was frustrating at times. A bigger hook would probably help, but then the gauge would have been off.
Ravelled here
Sticking to the red theme, this was my lunch in the sun yesterday:
One chopped tomato, lots of feta cheese, olives and pine nuts. Yummy!
